The Recycling Depot area is where you can drop-off a variety of common recyclables — including some that are not accepted in our curbside recycling program.
When you turn off Table Rock Road, follow the signs to the Recycling Depot. Once there, you will see clearly marked areas for each type of recyclable materials we accept.
Items that CAN be dropped off at the Recycling Depot
- Corrugated Cardboard: the kind with the wavy center

Certain plastic bottles and jugs can be dropped off here for recycling
To make sure your plastic bottles and jugs will be accepted, follow these simple steps:
- Check the neck: neck of the bottle must be smaller than the base
- Check the number: #1 and #2 bottles and jugs only
- Keep them separate: #1 bottles, #2 bottles, no lids
