Highlighting Some of our New Event Features:

GreenDrop for Lightly Used Home Goods

The GreenDrop charity will have a vehicle on site to collect lightly used home goods.  In honor of October being Blindness Awareness Month, all items donated during this event will benefit the Federation of the Blind charity.  Receipts for charitable donation deductions for your taxes will be available.

Residents can drop off clothing and small household appliances for GreenDrop.  A full list of acceptable and unacceptable items can be found here:   

New! Styrofoam Drop-Off for EPS & Styrofoam

New in 2021 - The City is excited to add a new way to recycle your EPS products!  While we all would love to remove all polystyrene from the waste stream – with the recycling alternative – at least we can make something beneficial!

Bring your Styrofoam packaging to the October 16th event and EPS Industry Alliance will collect and recycle the products into things such as surfboards, picture frames, construction material, and new packaging.
