The Recycle Center is currently not taking plastic for recycling. Once plastic recycling resumes, you can drop it off at the following locations.
Clear Creek Disposal is a wonderful partner and the provider for curbside recycling. Please call them to schedule a routine recycling pick-up. There is no extra charge beyond regular waste collection services. Though any sturdy box or bin would suffice, Blue Bins can be purchased directly from Clear Creek Disposal. Please call (208) 726-9600.
