The City of Pensacola would like to remind residents of the rules at the Summit Boulevard Recycling Center, due to a high volume of Styrofoam and other unrecyclable materials being disposed of. Styrofoam is not a recyclable material, and it can cause the entire load to be rejected.
The recycling drop-off center is video monitored 24/7 to ensure proper use of the site and to deter illegal dumping of nonrecyclable materials.
The center has three containers for residents to properly dispose of recyclables including cardboard, plastic, glass and more. Two containers are available for cardboard only. Cardboard boxes must be broken down and placed through the slots on the side of the box. The third container is available for other recyclable materials. Household garbage and yard waste are not accepted.
