Recycling/Rubbish Collection


Green bins are provided by Kimble for recycling. Plastic containers #1‐7, cardboard boxes, newspaper and mixed paper, glass bottles, jars and aluminum, bi‐metal and steel cans can all be placed in the same bin for recycling. Large cardboard boxes should be placed next to the bin. KIMBLE’S customer service number is 1‐800‐201‐0005 should you have need to contact them.

Computers and components may be dropped off at the Service Garage Monday thru Friday from 7 am to 3 pm. We can give you a receipt but we do not put a value on the equipment. Acceptable home computer equipment includes CPU’s, monitors, keyboards, mice, printers, terminals, modems, cables, software and ink printer cartridges. The computer equipment is delivered to non-profit RET3 Job Corp. They are then purged and used for parts to make computers for schools, learning centers, church groups and non-profit organizations. The donation is TAX DEDUCTIBLE.

Please be advised of the following changes to the Household Hazardous Waste Program that will be effective June 2, 2017.
We are implementing these changes to reduce program costs for items where alternative disposal options exist.

Fluorescent Bulbs and Compact Fluorescent Bulbs will no
longer be accepted. Residents can dispose of their CFL bulbs at any Home Depot or Lowe's. Because of this existing program, we decided not to duplicate a program that is already being offered at no cost to taxpayers.

More changes regarding batteries and more are outlined in the publication available HERE
