recycling center

Along with our residential curbside recycling, University Place Refuse and Recycling offers a convenient recycling center for larger quantities of recyclables and other items that we cannot accept in our curbside recycling bins.  The recycling center is located in our parking lot at 2815 Rochester St, one block off 27th behind Cheers West.  Our recycling center hours are Monday-Friday, 7:00am-4:30pm and Saturday from 7:00am-1:30pm.
