The High Rock Waste and Recycling facility will re-open for business on Friday, Nov 18.
Improvements include the modernization of the High Rock Road Center into a Neighborhood Center at a cost of $1.1 million. As a Neighborhood Center, services will now include collection of bulky materials, textiles, metal, yard waste, tires, clean wood, white goods (appliances), cooking oil and food waste. Smaller bulky materials that fit into the household waste compactor will also be accepted.
The salvage shed, waste oil, oil filters, wet and dry cell batteries and electronics will also remain. Additional upgrades include an asphalt driving surface and concrete pads for staging compactors and 40 cubic yard roll-off containers.
