I have a twin-trundle bed that has a metal frame and a mattress, a glass coffee table with a metal frame and a wooden men's dress valet. Will you be able to recycle the metal and wood if I bring it to your facility?

We can accept all the materials and will recycle what we can, including the mattresses if it is dried, and the metal frame and wood.


I remodeled my kitchen. I need to dump old ceramic tiles, a bit of drywall and some wood; all total will be less than 1 pickup truck. Will you accept this and roughly how much will it cost?

Yes, we will recycle it all, if we can. The rates for these types of materials are $10.00 per cubic yard with a minimum charge of $20.00. To determine your rate, measure the length of the load, x height x the width and divide by 27. A standard pickup can carry 2 to 4 yards. There is no allowance for air space so pack your load well.


Do you accept furniture? If so, what is the cost to dispose of a sofa & loveseat?

Our rates for these materials are $10 per cubic yard. If you measure the length x width x height of the load and divide by 27, you will get the total cubic yards. A lot of other companies will charge you extra for these materials, but not us.


I have solid/sludge waste: dirt, rocks, misc debris that I need to dispose of. It is also a little bit wet.

This could be a problem. Sludge is a regulated waste and most sites are not able to accept it. If this is more like wet soil, then we can accept the materials but it has to be less then 50% moisture content.


Do you take tires? If so, how much do they cost and do you just bury them?

We accept both car and truck tires. Car tires are $5.00 each and truck tires $15.00 each. We take all our tires to a permitted state recycler for recycling. View our current rate sheet (pdf).
