Please bring in only natural cork for recycling. The cork bin is located inside the recycling center office. Please ask a staff member for assistance.


Natural cork is 100% natural, biodegradable and renewable. There is no reason natural wine corks should end up as garbage when recycled cork can become flooring tiles, building insulation, automotive gaskets, craft materials, soil conditioner and sports equipment.
