This facility is self-serve. Drive-through access is provided – no walk-ins.

Disabled and elderly will be assisted.

Wright Township uses single-stream recycling, which means recyclables do not have to be sorted.

The rules will be strictly enforced and any violators will be turned away. Residents are asked not to arrive before the center opens. This causes traffic congestion on the incoming lanes.

Cooperation is appreciated and necessary for the success of the center.

For more information on special collections including tires and electronics, call 570-474-9067.
