“We have tried to leave the gates open to the recycle depot as much as possible to make it convenient for people to recycle, but because some people have been dumping garbage and things that don’t belong in the recycle containers, the city will be reducing the hours that the public has access to the depot,” Melanie Wagner, assistant to the city manager, wrote in an email.

The depot is now open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday-Friday and 8 a.m. to noon Saturday and Sunday.

Flattened cardboard, glass bottles and jars, plastic containers, metal containers and paper are accepted at the depot.

Wagner also reminded residents that the depot does not accept garbage, plate glass such as window panes, drinking glasses, aquariums or fish tanks or Styrofoam.

“Detailed instructions are posted at the depot,” Wagner wrote. “Please follow directions so the city can continue to provide this service.”
