Open Tuesdays 3-6 pm & Saturdays 2-5 pm at the Lucas Town Hall
"Single stream" means that all recyclables are placed loose in the same dumpster - they do not need to be separated. Recyclables we can accept include:
- #1 and #2 plastic bottles and jars
- Aluminum, steel and tin cans
- Glass containers
- Corrugated cardboard (no food-contaminated cardboard or paper)
- Office paper
- Newspaper and newsprint
- Magazines, catalogs, and other materials on similar paper
Please flatten cardboard boxes before placing them into the dumpster. Rinse all plastic, metal and glass containers until they're free of residue.
The recyclables are taken to a center where a machine separates them: please do not tie, bag or box the recyclables. They need to be loose in the dumpster.
All trash must be contained in Town of Lucas trash bags.
Spring and Fall Cleanup Days: Some items that do not fit in Town of Lucas trash bags may be disposed of during scheduled Spring or Fall cleanup days. Click here for a list of trash and recyclables accepted at the most recent cleanup day. Note that there is a fee for some items. The next cleanup day will be scheduled for spring of 2024.
