An image explaining the Wayne County Recycling Center is closed until further notice.

The center will be accepting all regularly accepted materials EXCEPT, due to COVID-19,  cannot accept any soft plastics (shopping, bread, vegetable, garbage bags, etc.) at this time. Weis Market has advised that they will not accept them, therefore, we have nowhere to distribute them for recycling.  

Thank you for your anticipated cooperation.
