Recycling Materials

An updated list of materials accepted by the Recycling Center can be found here (PDF).

Here is a list of all the recycling options in Wayne.

Recyclable plastic containers have a number printed inside a triangle on the bottom of the container. It is imperative that all persons check each container to find this number to determine whether or not it can be recycled, and if so, where to put it. All persons are responsible for sorting their own items into the proper bins. Any person attempting to leave unsorted recycling materials will be charged the appropriate solid waste fee. The following plastics materials are accepted for recycling at the recycling center/transfer station at no cost:

  • Corrugated cardboard
  • Steel cans
  • Aluminum cans
  • Number 1, Number 2, Number 3, Number 4, Number 5, and Number 7 Plastics
  • Newspapers for Boy Scout Troop Number 174
  • Glass

The Recycling Center does not accept Number 6 plastics, styrofoam, or Motor Oil containers. All containers must be rinsed and free of any liquids or food contamination or they will be rejected. Glass should be removed from any other object to which it might be attacked (i.e. window frames, sashes, etc.)
