Enhanced Recycling is special recycling that is only available at our four Full-service Recycling and Disposal Centers, and consists of:
- White Rigid Foam
- Hardback and Softcover Books
- Shredded Paper
- Food Wastes
- Clean Wood and Furniture
White Rigid Foam
Bring us your Rigid Foam! Feed our Foam-a-Saurus Rex! We are accepting rigid polystyrene foam that comes as part of packaging. Usually white in color, and found in packaging with TVs, and appliances. It needs to be clean. No food packaging at this time. Food packaging is unfortunately not clean enough for recycling unless you have thoroughly washed it. All clean foam goes into the specially marked containers. Look for “Rex” the dinosaur. We will grind and melt the foam into dense ingots then ship to market.
Hardback & Softcover Books
This is where those hard and soft back books need to go. Yes, they all will get recycled. If they are still good for reading, you can donate them to many sources; however, if the books have reached the end of practical use, drop them in the special book recycling bin. All books will get ground and sent for recycling. Please remove any plastic inserts in books or things like Compact Disks. Just put the books into the special marked containers.
We’ll take your clothes, shoes & accessories! You can also recycle your pillows, sheets, and towels. Accessories include things like belts, vests, and hats. Basically, anything clothing or wearable-related. If your items can be directly repurposed as clothing, they will be. Things that can't be repurposed will be used as secondary ground fiber and used as towels and similar products.
Bring your items to one of our full-service recycling centers and place them directly into the big blue bins. For shoes, make sure they are tied together.
