How to recycle


Caution: Protect your skin when handling lead. It’s potentially hazardous.

In recycling

Lead pieces 3-inches or larger can go in the recycling:

  • Lead should fit in your bin with the lid closed.
  • Don’t exceed the weight limits printed on your bin.

Drop-off locations

Bring lead 8-feet or smaller to city transfer stations. Fees apply.

Decrease waste: Choose reusable items or donate to thrift stores.
