Resourceful facility, attentive employees, clearly marked stations with free recycling for paper, cardboard, glass, plastic, and aluminum, plus antifreeze and motor oil recycling; however, there are a few insights people may find helpful to know from a local. LOOK OUT: There is absolutely NO SIGNAGE when you turn right off Blue Mountain Road (from Hwy101 direction) indicating the facility is there, as of the time of this writing. It would be nice if the owners could rectify this for the sake of clearly identifying the location from both directions of Blue Mountain Road so that people looking for it can find it, and then they can make money from the people which is the point of being in business. I know folks who have driven miles past the facility never seeing any sign telling them it was there or that they even missed it! This is a terrible lack of service on the facility's part, but typical for this region overall. There is a small sign after you turn to get into the facility, but it is not in view from Blue Mountain Road. No signage might explain why I've seen bags of garbage along the side of Blue Mountain Road, from people who grew tired of looking so they tossed their garbage out the window. BEWARE: Plenty of people who use this facility have little respect for others who use it. People park in the way where signs tell them not to park causing back-ups, they don't make room for others or seem to understand others need access to the limited space too, they move slowly while a line forms and people wait for them, and they appear to have no intention to go quickly to facilitate the line moving; it's as if the world revolves around them. It's mind-boggling to sit in line watching grown adults dawdle who know better, yet they do nothing to do better. So go early to beat the entitled, the retired, the slow moving, and the poorly prepared.
