VALCORE Recycling is a Non-profit recycling center that accepts bottles/cans (Buyback) and donations (Other Recyclables).

UPDATE (May 2020):

NEW: Due to circumstances beyond our control, VALCORE will be CLOSED on Saturdays until further notice. Please be aware that we remain very busy and even though we are working hard, there are still lines to get in much of the time.

Regarding cardboard donations: At this time, cardboard will only be accepted between 9AM-10AM. This may change as we get caught up, so please call if you are unable to make it during those hours.

Out of consideration for those waiting to get in, please bring in your materials fully sorted with caps off and cans that are smashed (which will use fewer barrels, all of which have to be weighted and tallied). This will decrease your time in the yard and allow for others to recycle as well. Thank you!
