The facility accepts the following materials for recycling or safe disposal: antifreeze, used motor oil, old gasoline, oil-based paints, paint thinners, aerosol paints, herbicides, insecticides, pesticides, lawn chemicals, solvents, drain cleaners, cleaning products, pool chemicals, hobby chemicals, mercury, fluorescent lamps and bulbs, computers and cell phones.
These materials are accepted during the facility's regular hours of operation: Tuesdays from 7:00 AM to noon; Thursdays from 2:00 PM to 7:00 PM and the first Saturday of every month from 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
Many of the electronics will be taken apart and recycled, while newer computers will be refurbished through the program and made available to local schools, churches, non-profits groups and low-income families.
Residents can bring paper, plastics and glass to the 1150 N North Branch facility. The Center accepts the same full range of materials as any recycling center and all recyclables can be tossed in together.
