Recycling Event

   

The City usually holds free recycling events each spring and fall for residents to drop off a variety of items that are not typically collected at the curb and/or banned from disposal.  

Due to COVID-19, full-scale Recycling Events have been cancelled. Smaller events are being scheduled.
