Scrap Metal

You may have noticed that the area where the scrap metal bin is

located has been gated off. Our Scrap Metal program is still one of our more popular programs. We’re just collecting the material in a slightly different way. We ask that you stop in the office (located next to our drop-off) and let us know you have metal. Depending on a variety of factors, we’ll direct you to where to unload and assist as needed. Our guidelines for recycling scrap metal have not changed…

Scrap Metal Items accepted Monday through Friday 8am-4pm
Items must be primarily metal
All fluids (gas, oil, etc.) must be removed from items
No propane tanks
There is a fee for items containing Freon such as:

  • Refrigerators/Freezers—$25
  • Air Conditioners/Dehumidifiers—$15

Just stop by the office and let us know you have metal. We’ll be happy to take it as we have in the past!
