Garbage & Recycling for Small Business

The Eco Station offers all residents and small businesses a staffed drop-off location designed to divert a range of material from the landfill.

Materials accepted free of charge

Load Limit Guidelines for Businesses

The Eco Station accepts quantities of material that would typically be generated by a business in a period of 3 – 6 months. Business owners should arrange with their contracted waste hauler to properly dispose of larger quantities and other types of materials.

  • Use a pickup truck, van or car trunk to carry blue bag recyclables, flattened cardboard, computers or vehicle batteries.
  • Use good-sized boxes to carry small e-devices, household hazardous waste or rechargeable batteries.
