Teton County, Idaho has established a recycle/salvage program in order to reduce the amount of waste transported to the landfill by allowing salvageable items to be removed and reused by citizens. The basis of the program is to allow customers access to specific areas of the transfer station site for the purpose of salvaging and recycling useful items. Find more information here.
