Black Rock Recycling Program
Black Rock Refill has partnered up with TerraCycle and Preserve Products to provide an amazing convenient drop off location for your "non-recyclables"!
What are "non-recyclables"? Non-recyclables are items that are not normally recycled, such as toothpaste tubes, contact lenses, prescription bottles, and personal care packaging.
Now you can recycle those "non-recyclables" with Black Rock Recycle! Learn more about our partnerships with TerraCycle and Preserve Products below, or skip the boring intro and jump to our Locations, pricing, or What We Accept to learn more on what "non-recyclables" we are currently collecting!
TerraCycle has a mission of eliminating the idea of waste by recycling the "non-recyclable". Every piece of waste TerraCycle collects DOES NOT end up in a landfill.
Every piece of waste collected is rewarded points towards a cash donation to a local school or non-profit organization. We currently have the following school and non-profit organization to donate our rewards. If you are interested in adding your school or organization to our reward list, please do not hesitate to contact us.
Black Rock Refill has been added to Preserve Products GIMME 5 Program where they accept any clean, stamped, rigid, #5 plastics as well as any Preserve Products, such as toothbrushes and razors (not including the razor blades). Preserve Products recycle #5 plastics into new Preserve Products.
Come drop off your "non-recyclables" and #5 plastics with us and see the AWESOME rewards grow!
We currently have one location where you can drop off your waste weekly at the Riverside Farmer's Market located at
McKinley Arts & Culture Center
925 Riverside Dr
Reno, NV 89503

Pricing for this service is simple. We charge a $1.00 waste handling fee for 10 waste items or less, or a $2.00 waste handling fee for 10+ waste items dropped off to us.
Waste Handling fees cover the cost for maintaining, storing, sorting, and shipping waste to TerraCycle for recycling.
