DJ ROOT RECYCLING CENTER – CLOSED STARTING APRIL 2

Paper Shredding & Paper Recycling Services

We are excited to announce the re-opening of the DJ Root Recycling Center. Beginning Friday, February 26th we will be opening on an adjusted schedule, limiting our days to Mondays and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. only. We have always prioritized the safety of our customers and staff in these uncertain times. Due to Covid-19, we have had to modify our operations entirely.

We are asking you, our customers for your help in following our new guidelines which will allow us to stay open and work toward adding more days and hours in the future. It is extremely important to have all recycling separated and cardboard torn down. All material will be put in quarantine once it arrives at our facility. Each material type goes to different mills.

Due to Covid-19 we are challenged with limited staff, so your help with pre-sorting and separating all material before it is dropped off will be necessary for us to remain open. At this time, we remain a “no charge” recycling center.

With these new rules in place, we look forward to expanding days and hours in the future.


  • Please separate all recycling (cardboard broken down, magazines with magazines, newspapers with newspapers, books with books, office paper with office paper, junk mail, etc.)
  • Please put all paper shredding in a bag, separate from other recycling items. We do not shred junk mail, please separate from papers to be shredded.
