SHERIDAN — Due to concerns over staff safety and a reduction of resources during the coronavirus pandemic, the city of Sheridan’s recycling center is shutting down the sorting line until further notice.

All collection of trash and curbside recycling will continue as scheduled, according to a press release from the city; however, all will be taken to the landfill. Sheridanites are encouraged to continue to sort their waste using the designated trash and recycling bins.

The city will continue to recycle waste from commercial businesses and dropsites located throughout Sheridan. To recycle, locals are encouraged to bring items to the dropsites, including glass, cardboard, paper, aluminum and green waste. Plastic recycling is not available at this time.
