Illegal dumping:
Placing materials on the ground or dropping off materials not included in the list of materials accepted is considered illegal dumping.  Not only are violators subject to fines, the required clean up results in an increase of the cost of operations of the Center and its Programs.  Please note that the Armstrong Recycling Center and its trailer sites are under video surveillance.  If you are caught dropping off materials that are not accepted in the program, you could be subject to fines up to $300.
