• VCRS has TWO LANES to drive thru and drop off recyclables. 
  • Drop doors are located along one side of the building and serve both lanes.
  • Don’t hold up other recyclers — organize your recyclables prior to your arrival.. 
  • Organize into our 5 paper, 3 metal and 4 plastic categories (see recycling guidelines below).
  • Make sure what you bring is CLEAN, EMPTY and kept DRY. What you drop off is reused by manufacturers to be made into something new.
  • If you have any questions, please ask staff in the drive thru or give the office a call at 745-5544.
  • Thank you for your efforts and thank you for recycling.

Recycle triangles with a number inside are used as a Resin Identification Code (RIC) on plastics. They are used solely to identify the plastic resin used in a manufactured article. 

VCRS can accept and has a market for plastic bottles with a RIC #1. 

Plastics in the shape of cups, clamshells, tubs, trays etc with a RIC #1 are known as Thermoforms and MUST NOT be included with the bottles. They are not the same chemically and are not recyclable at VCRS at this time. Throw away these “other” shaped RIC #1 plastics or try not to buy them.
