The RAP Center is a Snowline enterprise that salvages your recyclables, diverts material from the local landfills, saves our streams and supports the Snowline mission.

What is E-Waste?

Items that run on electricity (working or not) such as: computers, televisions, flat panel monitors, broken exercise equipment, etc.



What is Scrap Metal?

Items made metal such as: bicycles, wire hangers, lawn mowers, broken cars, weights, golf clubs, old metal tools, angle iron, barbed wire, old wire fencing, motors, engines, car parts, etc.

Lawn mowers and other equipment must have fluids drained before donating. Fencing should be rolled up.

We are sorry we cannot take everything. Following is a referral guide for those items we cannot accept.

If you don’t see it listed, Call Us! Acceptable items may vary as markets change throughout the year.

As of March 1, 2019, Snowline Hospice will no longer be accepting mattresses or box springs. Contact your local waste disposal company for recycling options.

Thank you does not begin to express my gratitude to each and every one of you.

The gift you gave to my Bobby and me is beyond words. You proved each day the beauty that is hospice.

It’s still difficult, but knowing Bobby departed free of pain and anxiety gives me peace. I will always be grateful for the love and compassion you brought into our house.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
