Frequently asked questions
RECYCLE THESE ITEMS FREE
Plastic Bottles, 1’s & 2’s only – The # is usually within a triangle on the bottom, or near the bottom of the container. For example, most soft drink and water bottles are #1’s. Milk and laundry soap jugs are usually #2’s.
Scrap Metal, including appliances such as dish washers, washing machines and ovens (nothing with freon!!)
Mixed Paper, including newspapers, magazines, junk mail and cereal boxes. If its paper and not corrugated it goes in this category.
If you would like to recycle a refrigerator or anything with Freon, there is no charge for this.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Rinse all containers
Remove lids from plastic bottles
Place recyclables loose in the bins (e.g., not in bags)
You do not have to remove any labels.
Do not put soiled items such as paper towels, paper plates, or napkins in the recycling bins
Break down corrugated boxes if possible
Plastics with the numbers 3-9, such as yogurt or margarine containers
Glass bottles – recycling glass bottles is not feasible at present because of our location, shipping costs, minimum load requirements, current and historical selling prices, infrastructure costs, labor costs, fuel costs, etc. We continue to monitor current pricing, however, and if this changes, we will post this on this page and at the Transfer Station.
Ask at the Transfer Station about how to dispose of these properly:
