MEMBERSHIP OPTIONS

Roots Recycling is a membership organization.  Membership is required.

Roots Recycling is NOT a drop-off location.

No sorting required with the exception of glass.  Please make sure that all glass is placed into the GREEN REUSABLE BAG  and that there is no glass in your orange bag.  We ask this of you because we sort all of the materials by hand. 

We DO NOT accept material in trash bags due to high contamination and amount of garbage received.

Extra material will only be accepted in Roots Recycling's Orange, White, or Green Reusable Recycle bags.  Small amounts of BROKEN DOWN CARDBOARD may be placed on the side of your bag for your driver to pick-up.  If you have a lot of cardboard, please call the office to schedule a special pick-up or arrange a time you can drop-off your cardboard at the facility.`

LOCATIONS

The One-Bag Recycling program is ideal for those families or individuals looking to recycle without the need to purchase a membership.  Purchase a reusable recycling bag at any of the businesses listed below and when it's full, simply return to any of the locations during their business hours.  When returning your filled pre-paid recycling bag, you'll have the option of purchasing another bag to continue to recycle.  Both the orange and green bag are offered, unless specified below.  We ask that you separate your glass because we sort all materials by hand.
