The Public Convenience Center (PCC), located within the landfill property, was opened in August 1999 as a safe, convenient, environmentally responsible alternative to the traditional  “dump” experience. The PCC is a mini-“mall” for residential disposal needs which consists of the following services: customer unloading site, recycling area, and Household Hazardous Waste  (HHW) drop-off facility and reuse center.


Unloading Site

The heart of the PCC is the customer  unloading site which allows residents to dispose of their trash onto a large concrete pad away from the dirt, mud, and large garbage trucks. Placing residential customers on a concrete unloading site will make the  trip cleaner, safer, and more pleasant.

Recycling Circle

The recycling circle provides a convenient way for residents to participate in a waste diversion program.

Residential customers will be able to drop off the following recyclable material:

  • All metals- including radiators.
  • White goods (washers, dryers, hot water heaters, residential refrigerators and freezers).
    • A $12.00 fee will be charged to remove freon from refrigerators, freezers, A/C units, and Humidifiers
  • Clothing
  • Books
  • All plastic bottles, tubs, jugs & jars
  • Steel Cans
  • Aluminum Cans
  • Bicycles
  • Cardboard (does not include packing materials)
  • Paperboard
  • Mixed Paper
  • Copper
  • Brass
  • Glass bottles & jars (clear, brown and green glass accepted. All colors in one bin)
  • Electronic scrap / waste

The recycling program for child car seats, booster seats, bicycle and motorcycle helmets is on hold until further notice. These items will be disposed of at the regular trash rate.
