Pellitteri wants to keep costs down for collecting recyclable materials, but they need our help.  Beginning April 2019, improperly placed recyclables will be tagged and not collected.  Please see Pellitteri's memo, and review additional information on the City's and Pellitteri's web sites for a list of recyclables materials and proper cart placement.

Middleton Recycling Center

NOTICE! The Middleton Recycling Center will be closed on Saturday, July 4th. It will reopen the following Saturday and resume its normal hours: 8:00am - 12:00pm Saturday mornings.

Please read the information below regarding limited services offerings due to COVID-19. This page will be updated as offerings at the center change.

Special notes during initial limited operations:

 1.      Thank you for your patience, and for storing recyclables at your home, while we were temporarily closed due to the pandemic.  The Middleton Recycling Center will open on Saturday, May 16 with limited operations.

2.      Visitors to the Recycling Center are asked to wear a mask covering their nose and mouth while in the center.  Middleton staff will also be wearing a mask.

3.     On Saturday June 6, the Middleton Recycling Center began collecting electronics that require a fee including TVs, dehumidifiers, microwaves, window A/C units, CRT monitors, dorm size refrigerators, all-in-one computers, and water coolers. The fees are the same as before and are listed on the recycling website and at the recycling center. Payment of fees is by exact cash or check only, no credit cards. Staff at the recycling center will give instructions when you arrive on how to pay your fee. Please be aware that staff will not be able to assist in unloading electronic items and that only two vehicles will be allowed in the recycling center at the same time. Also, please remember to wear a mask.

4.      Even with limited operations, we anticipate there may be periods with long lines and wait times.  Please plan accordingly, and please be patient.  If we can’t operate safely, we can’t remain open.

 5.      Up to two vehicles (preferably one) may be allowed into the building at one time.  This is intended to help achieve social distancing for public health.  Please remain at least 6 feet from others (including staff) while using the center.

 6.      Staff at the Middleton Recycling Center are not able to assist residents in unloading recyclables.  Customers are expected to place their materials in the proper receptacle and to help keep the center neat.  Due to risk of infection, staff cannot reposition recyclable materials inefficiently placed in dumpsters.  Inefficient dumpster use may require closing early to allow changing of dumpsters, and will raise expenses.

7.      Prior to closing time, staff will set a sign behind the last vehicle that will be allowed in for the day.  Others waiting in line will need to return another day.

The Middleton Recycling Center is open year-round on Saturday mornings (excluding major holidays) from 8 a.m. to noon at 4330 Parmenter Street (at the Municipal Operations Center).
