“Recycletown” Reuse Area

Adjacent to the recycling drop-off zone at Central is the reuse area, also known as “Recycletown,” operated by Garbage Reincarnation, Inc., where household goods, building materials, toys, clothing and a myriad of other items can be donated and are then offered for sale to others. As Garbage Reincarnation is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, articles donated at Recycletown are tax-deductible.
