Recycling & Waste

Recycling Center and Transfer Station

Mission Statement

The Town of North Elba endeavors to reduce solid waste, promote the recycling of material, and maintain and advance a clean, sustainable and environmentally conscious community. It is the ultimate goal of our program to foster educational links and stimulate collaboration between local government and all segments of our population; our youth, employees, visitors, homeowners, businesses, and seasonal residents. Environmental responsibility requires a commitment from everyone!

Recycling is essential for the preservation of our natural resources and environment. If we don't recycle, we will eventually run out of space for all of our trash. On the average, Americans generate 4.3 pounds of solid waste every day. Please help us do our part in reducing the amount of waste that ends up in our landfill by taking full advantage the recycling program. If unsure of what you have or have a question, please ask the attendant.
