Severe Weather Closing: Whenever we are experiencing extreme weather, please check here, Google Business, our Facebook page or call to hear our outgoing message on our phone line to find out if we’re open.
Building drop off: You can drop off 2 boxes but they MUST close and MUST be 30 lbs or less. We are going to start rejecting those that don’t meet this criteria. We simply can’t manage the literal ton of material dropped off on each open day if it’s not packed correctly. Thank you for your help.
Welcome! We accept curbside recycling items, textiles and many hard to recycle items (some with a fee).
We also have tons of free items for reuse throughout the site.
In addition, we hold document shredding, latex paint and household hazardous waste collection events a few times per year for residents of our member towns. Read on for more information, send us a message, give us a call, or check out our Facebook page. DEP regulations prohibit us from accepting trash or lawn/brush waste or creosote lumber.
Site Entry: Everyone must go through Check In. We track participation for the towns.
ReUse Building Drop Off: Drop remains at MIBOX unit along the exit road. Items MUST be in boxes with closed lids. Please read the post below for additional information about the: ReUse Building.
Yes! We need your help
As an almost completely all-volunteer operation, we rely on our volunteers to keep the site open. Please consider helping out, if only for one slot/week (or month). We are friendly, welcoming folks.
