The Town Council has made the Solid Waste and Recycling Service a priority and created the Solid Waste Enterprise fund as part of the 2018-2019 fiscal Budget. The goal of this program is to provide a clean, efficient, conveniently located facility that will allow residents to recycle, as well as allow seasonal visitors an economical and responsible way to dispose of household waste.

The Center will accept solid waste, type 1, 2, and 5 plastic recycling, glass, metal, aluminum, cardboard and paper, tree brush and pine needles. For individuals unfamiliar with the different types of plastic; the site plans to have brochures along with the fee schedule available at the site.  The Center will not accept hazardous materials at this time.

The Town will engage in an extensive community outreach initiative to educate citizens about the services available and to share the specific requirements for recycling. The Town urges all community members to utilize this valuable service to assist in maintaining the beauty of this unique area.
