The new recycling facility is located at 1535 Cogswell Street - suite C-15 in Rockledge.

The new facility, a drop-off location for hard-to-recycle materials, will provide ways to divert even more discards from the landfill by being a source for reusable items and also by offering collection of recyclables on a small scale.
