RECYCLING CENTER

april recycling

The Pettisville community recycle center, located on Rd DE by the Pettisville Schools track, is maintained by the FFA and FFA Alumni. Community members who drop off items are the most important part of this program. Please review the list of what we do and do not take and be responsible for your own trash. FFA members are on-site on the second Saturday morning from 8:30-11:00 am, give or take depending on work needed and this is a good time to get help with your load.
