The Dos & Don'ts

We like to say, if it has a plug or a power source, we can recycle it. But let's get specific. Here are the lists of what we can -- and can't -- take.

These lists apply to both business and residential recycling. If you have items you would like to recycle, you can come to one of our many community recycling events or drop them off during business hours at our Rochester facilities -- FREE of charge.

If you'd like a copy of these lists for quick reference, click here for a downloadable PDF.
