Where Can I Recycle?

Asbestos Shingles And Siding
It’s a common misconception to think that asbestos can be tossed into your regular trash after home remodeling. This material must be handled properly to prevent health hazards. When intact, asbestos presents little risk. Once it is broken or crushed, the fibers become airborne. It has been found to cause Asbestosis (a lung disease) when the fibers are released and become lodged in the lungs. For information on proper disposal of asbestos, please contact:

What About Tires?
Unfortunately, tires are one of those items that everyone has a need for, until they have to be replaced. Most municipalities may have a program in place where they will come out and pick up a single tire or two from residents. Call your municipality for further details on tire disposal.
In addition, the GCIA/Office of Recycling will sponsor another series of Tire Amnesty Days for county residents during March pending annual funding. Please contact our office for more details.
