Residents with waste tires and appliances should call to make an appointment at 1-877-R-1-EARTH (1-877-713-2784). Appointments will be accepted for the following dates:

A limited number of tires with rims will be accepted. Residents who want to transport loads of more than 9 tires may request a waiver when they make an appointment.
EDCO Station accepts free recycling drop off, year-round, for these additional items: used motor oil, electronic waste, fats, oil and grease, and CRV glass, cans, and plastic. Find out more here.
