About the Recycling Program
The Recycling Division is actively involved in recycling as mandated by the state’s Select Committee on Recycling and Environment (SCORE). This program is unique in that it is city operated, but funded from a State SCORE grant. Our focus is on residential and small business recycling and our programs are set up to help each with every aspect of recycling and waste reduction.
Sign up for email updates featuring program details and useful tips on energy savings, waste reduction, and more! Sign up for Notify Me here to receive updates.
You may see some changes to the layout of the Recycling Center. We are adding parking spaces, additional signage, and removing trees to prepare for some site improvements that will take place in 2021. Please use caution while driving through the site.
Look for the walk-up pay window on the main building to pay.
