Earthday News

No price increases in 2019 but we still only accept cash and checks.   We’re glad to say we’ve not had to increase prices for 2019 despite the challenges the recycling community faces.   However, we can only accept cash and checks so please come prepared.line-separator-green

Watch for weather closings.   If it snowed within 24 hours of our opening time or if the temps are in single digits with or without wind chill factor,  please check this website, our facebook page or call us to see if we are open before you head out.line-separator-green

We need you! Due to the massive increase in items being dropped off for reuse, we are busier than ever and desperately need volunteers. Please fill out the Volunteer Sign Up form under our Contact Us link even if you only have a few hours a month to spare.   If you belong to a social group, contact us about volunteering together!
