Timberline Recycling Center#
No entry fee to recycle antifreeze, batteries, oil and paint
There is no entry fee in 2023 at the Timberline Recycling Center’s Hard-to-Recycle Materials Yard when you recycle antifreeze, batteries, oil, and paint. Thanks to funding from the City’s Utilities Stormwater Department, community members can drop off these hard-to-recycle items to help improve indoor air quality and maintain a healthy water supply.
