The Recycling Transfer Facility (RTF) offers various collection areas which accommodates for all refuse and recyclable items, these collection areas are clearly marked to ensure the ease of access and disposal. It is recommended that all recyclable and refuse items are pre-sorted and properly organized prior to coming to the RTF to make sure disposal is quick and easy

The RTF does not accept asphalt of any kind, cement, or gas, the RTF only accepts trash that is in the proper blue "Pay-Per-Throw" trash bags, which can be purchased at the facility itself or at various other locations around town.


The Boutique is a unique section of the RTF because it operates as a free good-will station which accepts items that are in good working condition in which someone no longer needs but is not yet ready for the trash. Examples of items that are donated to the Boutique include furniture, toys, books, sporting equipment, etc.
