Covid-19 Recycling Updates

Thank you for your patience with the County’s recycling program during the pandemic. The table below is the most up-to-date sites where recycling has been re-opened. We are also sending out text & email alerts for those signed up here.

We are working to get cans & newspapers back online by late May, which hopefully will be followed by magazines and office paper. 

Plastics, will most likely be the last items to be brought back online. We are working on a  cost effective,  safe, and  hands-off method to empty the bottles out of the trailers.
