Middleton Recycling Center:
The Recycling Center is where city residents can drop off items such as metals, cardboard, block styrofoam, books, batteries, electronics, and many other items, so they can be recycled instead of being disposed of in a landfill. We have a need for help to sort items such as books and batteries and other tasks. Middleton Recycling Center is located next to the Municipal Operations Center on Parmenter Street in Middleton. The recycling center is open Saturdays 8am to noon. For now, Saturdays is the best time for HS kids to be at the recycling center since they’ll also get to see it in operation and hopefully learn about waste and recycling.
