      This facility is part of UWS’ Landfill Diversion Program, promoting the reuse of usable goods.
      Help keep usable items out of our landfills!
      Please take your unwanted, usable items that you might normally throw away or otherwise dispose of, such as paint, scrap lumber, tools, yard implements, small appliances, etc., to the T-Rex for other residents to take at no charge. A site employee will assist residents to access this resource and determine whether the T-Rex is the appropriate area for the goods. For vector control purposes, we cannot accept clothing, books, upholstered furniture, or mattresses.
      T-REX Mascot
      UWS will sponsor an adult recycled art contest challenging area artists to create a large outdoor T-REX dinosaur sculpture that will reside in the ancillary collection area. Entries will be judged by a panel of County officials and community members. The winner will receive a gift certificate for dinner for four at the local restaurant of their choice. CONTEST DATES ANNOUNCED SOON!
