The Recycling Drop-off Center is open Monday through Friday from 8AM to 4PM and Saturday from 8AM to noon. The Center is closed on holidays and gated after hours. Items accepted at The Center include aluminum, steel and bi-metal cans and corrugated cardboard. The change is a response to China’s ban on contaminated recyclables and a realignment of accepted materials with permit requirements. The Authority’s Public Recycling Drop-off Center is open for use by York County residents and commercial entities. There is no fee to deliver recyclables to the facility.
