Announcing New Saturday Hours
Beginning, Saturday, October 6, the Recycling Center will be extending its Saturday hours from 7:30 am to 3:00 pm
Our talented staff has dressed up the Recycling Bay with bright, cheerful artwork. Come see the mural and let us know what you think. So far, it’s been a hit! We thank our Recycling Center crew for the great work! Awesome, guys!
