Every dollar we save by recycling goes to the general fund. We collect donations of empty printer and toner cartridges, old cell phones, Copper, Brass, Aluminum, Steel, plastic bottles, glass bottles, and any plastic container that has a 2, 3, or 5 triangle code. Plastic bottles need to have the lids removed. In addition, please separate the CA CRV from the non-CRV containers as these items are recycled differently.
