Checklist - Before You Visit
Navigating the Site & Packing Your Car
All cars must stop at check in so we can verify residency. Please have an ID ready. We'll also assess and collect fees here. Fees can be paid with cash, check or charge.
Next, items such as tires, bikes, propane tanks, fire extinguishers, large appliances, electronics, metal, vehicle batteries, construction or other bulky debris such as mattresses or unusable furniture, are in the far end of the site ("The North 40"). Drive straight ahead and make the U turn. If dropping items off, these should be the last things you put in the car since the North 40 will be your first stop.
Center Circle & "The Annex"
Items such as redeemable bottles/cans ("Scout Shed"), fluorescent bulbs, cell phones, ink cartridges, household batteries and items with mercury (Bulb and Battery Shed"), bulky plastics, corrugated cardboard, mixed paper, clean glass, metal or plastic containers, and packing Styrofoam can be dropped off at the appropriate dumpsters/containers located mid-site ("Center Circle"). This area is also where you will find usable furniture, sports equipment and baby items ("The Annex"), outdoor children's toys, and gardening items as well. These items should be packed mid vehicle for drop off.
If you have indoor household goods for reuse, please ensure you have gathered and contained all the parts necessary for a game, appliance etc. Please pack your clean, unbroken, odor-free items in easy to carry boxes, with lids so they can be stacked. We limit drop off to 2 boxes per car per day. These items should be packed first in your vehicle since this will be your last stop for drop off. Drop off is along the Exit road, left lane. Please place your boxes on the table provided or directly in the storage box if directed to do so by the volunteers. Parking is at the front of the building if you'd like to look for treasures in the building.
On Special Collection days such as Document Shredding - please pack the paper last as this will be your first stop at the far end of the site on the HHP pad located at the far end of the site, before turning to go to N40. On HHP Days we are ONLY accepting HHP so pack that so we can easily assess and remove it from the trunk, truck bed or back cargo area.
