TC Recycling LLC Provides Local Services for Hard-To-Recycle Items

TC Recycling is a recycling and refuse disposal station located in Mars (Adams Township) and is part of the Vogel family of businesses.

The center is open to the public and accepts trash and hard-to-recycle items. The convenience center is good for occasions in which there is more garbage than a refuse bin can handle, or to get rid of items such as hazardous electronic-waste, oil and latex paint.

Additionally, a recycling container is available at the main entrance for local residents to use at no charge. There, residents can drop off cardboard; HDPE and PET plastics; and aluminum, steel and bi-metal cans.

The center also accepts e-waste, including unbroken televisions and monitors, computers and laptops, printers and computer peripherals; oil; antifreeze; latex paint; and tires, either on or off the rim. Those items must be kept separate from the rest of the load, and additional fees apply.

Household Hazardous Waste


Many chemical products found in the home, garage, workshop, and garden contain hazardous ingredients. These products, need to be used and stored safely. When they are disposed of, they must be handled differently than ordinary trash because even small amounts can cause environmental damage.

If you would put a "Mr. Yuck" sticker on an item, consider it hazardous. These products are considered hazardous:
  • Paint
  • Varnish
  • Wood Stain
  • Ammonia Cleaner
  • Oven Cleaner
  • Drain Cleaner
  • Wood Polish
  • Motor oil
  • Gasoline
  • Antifreeze
  • Paint Thinner
  • Rat poison
  • Turpentine
  • Weed Killer
  • Insecticide
  • Fertilizer

  • Handling and disposing of household hazardous waste:

    Once you purchase a hazardous product, you are responsible for handling and disposing of it properly:
    • Old paint can be mixed with cat litter or sawdust and left to dry. Once dry, it can be put in the garbage. Be sure no liquid is left because liquid is not allowed in a landfill.
    • If you are unsure about what to do with a product, Don't put it down the drain. Hazardous wastes can be a danger in the sewer lines, to the workers who service the sewer system, to your neighbors, and to the waste water treatment plant.
