The drop-off bins are labeled according to what material is to be put into the bins
Do not leave trash, tires, furniture, electronics, etc. at the sites. Leaving those items at the bins ruins the clean and tidy look we strive to maintain at every location. Follow the simple rules of the drop off sites to keep your yearly bills low. Constant abuse of the drop off sites can result in removal of the bins at the location and/or increase in the yearly bill due to extra expenses involved with cleanup of the site(s).
