Hard to Recycle Items Guide

Thank you for helping to keep Golden Green!The following guide offers information on local recycling options for materials that are not accepted in curbside recycling programs. Because these vendors are not affiliated with the City and are privately owned operations, their information may change at any time. We suggest calling ahead.

Additional resources for recycling of out of the ordinary wastes can be found at Ecocycle.org.
