Community organizations donate the use of their property to host Recycling Depots. Please help us keep the depot sites clean. When items are left outside the blue bins, it is considered illegal dumping, and individuals may be prosecuted. If you see someone illegally dumping items at a Recycling Depot, please contact us at 738-1212.
