The City now has two community drop off centers and will soon be adding a third.  Residents can recycle various items, including paper products (newspapers, cardboard, etc.), plastics #1-7 (bottles, containers, etc.), aluminum cans, and glass at these locations. It is also easy and inexpensive to add curbside recycling service through the City’s recycling hauler – American Refuse.  Most household materials are recyclable and adding curbside recycling provides additional capacity for waste.

Recycling is mandatory for commercial businesses that generate over four cubic yards of waste per week, along with all multi-family residences over 5 units. Beginning January 1, 2019 all businesses that generate over 4 cubic yards of waste must recycle organic material.  Businesses that do not comply with recycling laws are subject to non-renewal or revoking of business licenses.
