Town of Trenton
The Town of Trenton Recycling & Solid Waste Collection Center is open to Town of Trenton businesses and residents only.
Hours of Operation:
- Wednesdays: 3:00 pm - 7:00 pm
- Saturdays: 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
The Center is staffed during operating hours. Residents are assisted in unloading when possible but should be aware that they are responsible for unloading their own vehicles.
The Center DOES NOT accept by-products of a business unless it was generated from a Town resident. (i.e., The Town will not accept used appliances from an appliance dealer unless the item came from a Town resident). Businesses are required to obtain a signed statement from the resident on a form supplied by the Town. Residents are not allowed to bring material on behalf of non-Town residents or material generated from outside the Town. In order to keep costs down, the Town may require proof of residency. Please do not be offended if you are asked for this information. Many non-Town residents try to use the facility for free. We do not want Trenton taxpayers subsidizing non-resident use.
Attendants often set aside items that may be of use to someone else. These items are on a first come, first, take basis. The Town sets aside returnable beverage containers. These may be picked up by Town of Trenton nonprofit groups for redemption later. Pick up is on a first come, first, take basis.
- Household items
- Construction debris
- Green waste
Branches that are brought in are run through a chipper and the chips are available free for residents to take home.
The Center DOES NOT accept household garbage (i.e., diapers) or hazardous material.
