For New or Replacement Recycling Bins please contact the Solid Waste Authority 

The processing mills and aluminum buyers for Solid Waste Authority no longer accept ALUMINUM FOIL AND PIE PLATES as recyclable material, so please throw these items into the garbage.  Please be assured that the Solid Waste Authority makes every effort to reduce, reuse and recycle.  These items will now likely be processed at our Renewable Energy Facility and turned into electricity.

Because contamination affects the marketability of the materials we collect, please be careful not to place the following in your recycle bins - plastic bags, styrofoam and food waste.
