This event occurs twice a year during May and November. The next Recycling Day will take place this Saturday, May 12.

This is your chance to "think green"—if it's made of metal or you can plug it in, you can recycle it. Don't let those items you have collected while spring cleaning end up in the landfill. Old barbeque grills, lawn mowers, metal patio furniture, car parts, old bicycles, gutters, metal siding, metal fencing, exercise equipment can all be recycled. 

All metal and electronics recycling is free, except for a $15 fee for computer monitors and a $20 fee for televisions.

New This Year

Federal Recyclers will now be accepting paint for recycling and offering document shredding. They have a recycling fee of $2 for pints or gallon cans and a $7 charge for 5 gallon cans. Please leave labels on paint cans because some paints are hazardous waste and need to be separated for controlled recycling. Document shredding will be a $5 per box charge.
