The recycling center is located on W. Hillcrest Rd. just north of Hwy B. It is open Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. unless posted otherwise.
Only clean items that are recyclable AND are accepted by our vender should be placed in the recycling dumpster. A list is available at the recycling center. There is no charge for recycling.
A garbage dumpster is located next to the recycling center on W. Hillcrest Rd. Residents may dispose of non-recyclable trash at the rate of $3 per 33 gallon bag. Prepaid bags are available for sale during recycling hours – Saturday 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
NO ANIMAL CARCASSES OR PARTS OF CARCASSES MAY BE DISPOSED OF IN THIS DUMPSTER!
The cost of the garbage bags is due to "tipping fees" (state tax) charged to dumpster suppliers and passed on to customers.
