 Other Dropoff Locations  Timberline Recycling Center

Lawnmowers can be recycled as scrap metal at the drop-off locations listed below. They should be emptied of liquids before recycling.

An item must be at least 50% metal to be recycled as scrap metal. This includes a wide variety of items, including water heaters, lawnmowers, wire, satellite dishes, metal shelves and bicycles. Most any item with a motor or power cord has enough metal in it to be recycled as scrap metal. If an item has a circuit board, it must be recycled with electronics.

The only metals that are accepted in curbside recycling are aluminum and steel cans, and aluminum foil. Other scrap metals should never be included in curbside recycling, as they can damage recycling equipment at the sorting facility. They should instead be recycled at local scrap metal recyclers.
