Four centers in the Boise area accept cardboard, office-type paper including newspapers, magazines and phone books, plastic containers, and metals. Some pay for metals, cardboard, and paper. Each recycling center has large bins labeled for specific materials, so you will need to sort your recyclables.
Unless otherwise noted, centers offer 24-hour access to the drop-off bins and may pay for your recyclables during normal business hours. Please contact the center you're going to use to confirm hours and accepted materials.
