Taylor Garbage has made substantial investments in the recycling industry as we have evolved. Our single-stream recycling plant was recently built in Apalachin, New York. This facility is the first and only full-scale single-stream recycling plant in the area. This has allowed us to remove the burden of sorting from our customers and the employees at the curb.

Vestal Recycling Program

Effective August 1, 2020, our Vestal yard on Old Vestal Rd will no longer be able to accept recycling from customers. This is due to customers misusing this service to dispose of non-recyclable items. The yard will be closed to the public and all recyclable materials can be brought to either our Barton or Owego transfer stations during regular business hours. We apologize for not being able to continue this valued service in Vestal.

Property Management Solid Waste Collections

**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 $6.00 charged which will be refunded after the bin is turned in. We will also swap a broken bin for a new one with no deposit required if the old 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 607-687-8274. She will arrange to have the bin delivered to your house.
