Recycling Events for Residents

SWANCC residents can participate in many drop-off programs for special materials that cannot go in curbside recycling programs, or can be reused, recycled or have the need for environmentally-safe disposal.

They also provide Document Destruction for residents who have sensitive documents to destroy, such as medical records, tax forms, bank statements, etc.

The following locations will host a One-Day Collection event for Electronics Recycling and Document Destruction for residents who live in any SWANCC member community.
