1. How do I proceed when I arrive at Riverside Recycling?
Pull into our entrance gate at 910 Riverside Street and proceed up the hill. Please stop and speak with an attendant so that you can let them know what you have to recycle. All customers have the choice to either sort their loads or "dump a mixed load". You may then proceed onto the Inbound Scale to be weighed. Please be sure to speak with an attendant before pulling onto the scale. Once you get the green light to go, you may proceed to either the sorting stations (on the right), or the mixed pile (on the left). Once you have completed your recycling, simply return to the Outbound Scale to be weighed again. Please feel free to go ahead and pull on up to the Outbound Scale even though the traffic light may be red. Just be sure to remain on the scale until you get the green light. One of our friendly scalehouse attendants will be waiting inside the office to finish processing your transaction.
