Monkton Recycling Center

Recycling Hours are from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of the month.

The Recycling Center is located on States Prison Hollow Road.  Traveling east on States Prison Hollow Road from the Monkton General Store take second drive on right past Dupont Auto and Body Shop.

The Recycling Center is a volunteer-run town service. The Monkton Maples 4H Club have been responsible for the center since 2003. Currently the volunteers at the center are transitioning to community members who are interested in connecting with their neighbors while providing an important service and helping our environment.

Here are a few things you can do to help the volunteers:

Please do NOT drop off recycling materials when the Recycling Center is CLOSED.

Please remember we are OPEN every 2nd and 4th SATURDAY from 9 – 12.

Please FLATTEN corrugated cardboard boxes before placing in Dumpster.

  • tin and aluminum cans
