Recycle Changes

The following materials are accepted at the Byrnes Mill Recycle Center: Clean cardboard, paper/newspaper, aluminum cans, tin and steel (clean), plastic bottles (milk, soda & water - lids left on), glass bottles and jars of any color, white items (refrigerators-with doors off and no refrigerant, washers, dryers, hot water heaters, dehumidifiers. Items not accepted are the following, but not limited to: food waste or items with food waste (pizza boxes), paper plates and cups (with wax), hazardous materials, any plastic containers that hazardous material came in (round-up - bug sprays), fabric softener - soap - bleach containers, paint & oil cans, household garbage, diapers, medical supplies, wood, styrofoam, glass windows or mirrors, ceramics, garden hoses, dinnerware, electronics. 

With the developing nature of the situation with coronavirus (COVID-19) the City has decided to take a proactive approach with regard to how drop offs will be handled at the Recycling Center.  As of today, March 17, 2020, all participants who visit the Recycling Center will be required to load their recyclable items into the compactor themselves.  Previously, a Recycling Center attendant would assist visitors with this but in an effort to promote social distancing the City is asking those who participate to do this on their own.  The attendant will still be present to monitor all drop offs and to log in all who come.  

The City understands this may be an inconvenience to some community members but we are hoping this will be a short-lived change.  As the situation develops, the City will do everything they can to update our residents as soon as possible.  

Please contact City Hall with any questions or concerns at (636) 677-7727.
