What Can I Recycle?

NOTICE: The baling equipment we use to bale plastic has broken down. It may take 1 to 2 months to repair.  In the meantime, we are not able to store the materials.  We will resume baling and shipping plastic as soon as the baler is repaired.  We are still recycling paper, cardboard, tin and aluminum.
