Taylor Garbage has made substantial investments in the recycling industry as we have evolved. Our second recycling plant was recently built in Apalachin, NY and is a state of the art Single Stream recycling plant. This has allowed us to make it possible to remove the burden of sorting from our customers and the employees a the curb.

**Recycling can be put out in any container as long as it is 32 gallons in size or less and says RECYCLING on it. We have stickers that say RECYCLING available at the office for no charge. We also have the Broome County recycling bins available. They can be picked up at our office. There is a one time deposit of $3.00 charged that will refunded after the bin is turned in again.  We will also swap an old broken bin for a new one with no deposit required, if the bin is brought to our office in Vestal.

**Tioga County customers can obtain a bin by calling Ellen Pratt at Tioga County Solid Waste. Her number is 687-8274. She will set up to have the bin delivered to your house.
