-Slick, glossy magazines are also accepted. Bag glossy separately from non-glossy papers

Corrugated Cardboard only:
       -All non-colored corrugated boxes.  Please flatten boxes to save space!

This DOES NOT include cereal boxes and other thin pasteboard materials. 

Placing items in bins that PerCo cannot recycle causes problems and costs money!! 

Thanks for recycling the right way!

WHAT WE DO NOT TAKE AT THE DROP-OFF BINS...AND WHY

Light bulbs, window glass!

All glass is not created equal!  The glass in these items is not something you want mixed into new glass bottles!

Cereal boxes and pop/beer wrappers!

Likewise, all paper fibers are not alike!  These are called paste-board for a reason: they are mostly glue or paste: they gum up other paper fiber products! No market is currently available to PerCo, our local recycling center.

#3-#7 Plastics, plastic toys, etc…
…other than beverage containers with # 1 or #2 on them!

Just as brown glass is different from clear glass, a # 5 plastic tub is not the same as a #1 pop bottle… Different types of plastics cannot successfully be merged together into a usable product… contamination costs the recycling facility time to sort and can cost them by lowering the price they receive for their finished product.  Manufacturers end up with contaminated product which costs them money; guess who pays in the end if their final product costs them more?  ...You and me!

Paint, oil, and liquids!

Hazardous household chemicals are still currently accepted at our Household Hazardous Waste Collection Days (HHW). HHW collection days are alternated between our four county solid waste district. Two collection days are held in two counties one year. Two other collections days are held in the other two counties the alternating year.

Motor Oil is accepted at our Ultimate Recycling Days.  Dates vary, but we try to organize two in the spring and two in the fall. Call our office for other options that may be available.
