The Dover Recycling Committee is offering free recycling for specialized items on Saturday, October 19, and Sunday, October 20, at the Transfer Station on Powisset Street. This will include a Food Drive to benefit local emergency food pantry A Place To Turn.
Items for recycling are accepted only from Dover residential property – nothing is permitted from commercial sites. Dover Transfer Station red vehicle stickers are required to participate in this event. Staff will be available to provide individuals with new stickers at that time.
Document shredding will occur only on Saturday from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m., or until the truck has been filled. Residents may bring up to five boxes of personal/sensitive documents to be shredded on site by an industrial-grade document shredding truck.
Bikes Not Bombs will accept bicycles to be refurbished and reused by this non-profit only on Saturday from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. A $10 donation per bike to this non-profit is appreciated.
Mattresses and box springs will be accepted on both days from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Automobile tires will be accepted on both days from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Residents will also have the opportunity on both days to donate non-perishable food to local emergency food pantry A Place to Turn. Attendees are encouraged to bring non-expired canned chicken, jelly, rice, pastas, soup, peanut butter, cereal, etc. to help neighbors in need.
