Did you know you can recycle batteries, antifreeze, motor oil and paint at the Timberline Recycling Center free of charge?
These materials are accepted year-round in the Hard-to-Recycle Materials Yard at the Timberline Recycling Center, so community members can safely dispose of them as needed. NEW THIS YEAR: Charges and entry fee apply for commercial customers dropping off batteries (learn more at fcgov.com/batteries).
Community members can also bring a variety of other materials to the Hard-to-Recycle Materials Yard, including scrap metal, fire extinguishers and bulky plastics for a $5 entry free. Additional fees apply for electronics, yard waste and wood waste.
The Timberline Recycling Center is located at 1903 S. Timberline Road. The Hard-to-Recycle Materials Yard is open Tuesday–Saturday. The “everyday” recyclables yard (cardboard, cans, glass, etc.) is open seven days a week during daylight hours.
Learn more information about this program and what is accepted at fcgov.com/trc.
