The following items can be recycled at the event:

  • Athletic shoes
  • Bicycles
  • Cell phones

  • Eye glasses
  • Golf balls
  • Hearing aids
  • Keys
  • License plates
  • Pill bottles
  • Rechargeable batteries

Residents can bring up to four paper grocery sacks of sensitive documents for shredding.  Paper clips and staples are okay, but plastic covers and binders should be removed.  The shred trucks will be available until filled. 

Pill bottles should be empty and have labels removed.

The event will take place rain or shine.

If you cannot attend the event on Nov. 18, another RecycleFEST event will be offered in the spring of 2018 in celebration of Earth Day.
