Free recycling in Arcata again
The Arcata Community Recycling Center’s CHaRM (Center for Hard to Recycle Materials) accepts a wide variety of discards, both everyday recyclables and those that require special handling.
Beginning July 1, 2011 ACRC is reducing the facility fee for drop off of these materials to zero (the current fee is five dollars per visit). Certain materials, such as electronic waste, appliances, and fluorescent tubes, will still require a small fee to cover their safe handling.
Drop off recycling of mixed paper (newspaper, magazines, cardboard, and office pack) and containers (glass bottles and jars, aluminum cans and formed containers, steel cans, and #1-#7 plastic bottles and containers) will now be offered as a free service.
The CHaRM is located in Arcata at Tenth and N Streets. The facility is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. For questions about recycling please call 445-4321 or visit arcatarecycling.org.
