Thank you for recycling! This valuable practice reduces the need for fossil fuel production, mining of minerals, and harvesting of forest trees. Your recycling efforts help fight the risks associated with climate change.
Recycling center hours of operation are on the First Saturday of the month from 9:00 – 11:00 AM; and on the Third Wednesday of the month from 7:00 – 8:00 PM. The center is for Washington Twp. residents only.
Note: There is NO recycling on Wednesday nights during the months of November, December, January and February due to the cold weather and early dusk hours.
The Red Barn recycling center is operated by volunteers. We can benefit from more available volunteers, so please consider this. You can provide your name and phone number when you are at the center, or you can contact Dwayne Henne at 267-733 2381.
Due to COVID19 safety, and overall safety, we only want the volunteers to be in the recycling center. This reduces the number of people in there and minimizes contact. The volunteers will take the items from your vehicle and walk them inside. We also encourage wearing of masks – volunteers and patrons. When arriving, the process is to stay within the cones and two vehicles will be attended to at a time at the doors.
Sorting of the recycling items is necessary so that the Red Barn can meet vendor requirements. The volunteers don’t have the time to sort your items. We need you to do this! Sort at home as follows:
- #1 plastics #2 plastics
- aluminum cans paper
- cereal box type cardboard corrugated cardboard ex. UPS shipment
- #3 and higher plastics, tin cans, & glass can be mingled together
