What We Do (and Don't) Recycle

RR accepts (via Collection and/or Drop-Off) an ever-growing list of items, including both traditional and Hard-to-Recycle Materials (HaRM). From carpets to corks to cassette tapes, some days it seems like we've seen it all. (but then someone calls in with 10 tons of toilets!)

Here (below; in alphabetical order) is a more in-depth look at some of the specific items we do and don't accept. Please note that e-waste and other HarM items may incur a processing fee!

Don't see something on here? Contact us! If we don't accept it, we may be able to help you find someone that does.
