Update: the Recycling Center is now accepting newspaper and cardboard

ELK POINT RECYCLE CENTER 
Open every Monday & Thursday  5:00pm to 7:00pm 

RECYCLE DROP OFF CENTER EAST OF THE WATER TREATMENT PLANT @ THE CORNER OF MAIN AND JACKSON STREETS 

In an effort to reduce costs paid for tipping fees and to protect the environment the City would like to encourage everyone to recycle. The City built a shed for materials to be dropped off at no charge. You may dispose of plastics, newspaper, cardboard (corrugated/lightweight press board) and aluminum and tin cans. Please make sure to clean out plastics and tin cans.  Labels do not have to be removed. Waste does need to be sorted. Glass is not accepted.
