About Us

At Apple Valley Recycling Center our team is dedicated to creating a more sustainable future for all of us. By making recycling a quick and easy process, we hope to encourage more municipalities to adopt smart recycling habits.

Our team at Apple Valley Recycling Center helps our facility by sorting out any waste materials that cannot be recycled. They help maintain our machinery by removing any products from the conveyor belt that could damage our equipment and halt the recycling process.

Help our team be more efficient by double checking what items you can recycle!
