Volunteers Make Recycling Work

ICR volunteers need your help to continue this successful program. To obtain the highest dollar value for recycled materials, items MUST be clean and sorted before they are brought to recycling sites.

Volunteers will be available to assist those who are unable to unload their recyclables.
Please bring your recyclables to a site in a reusable container, cardboard box, paper bag or check out our BAG-IT system.
