The Elk County Recycling Department provides assistance to residents by providing collection services for recyclable items in each of our local communities.  The regular collection schedule is listed below.  Each spring, the department coordinates an "e-waste" collection which provides a way for residents to recycle electronics, paint containers and other items which are often difficult to dispose of.

Recently, waste for recycling has been left unattended. Animals, Mother Nature, and other factors create a mess out of it. Clean-Up costs the recycling program precious time, money, and resources. Please help us keep our program by dropping your recycling at designated times and places.

THANK YOU for doing your part!
