White Pine Green-Up
The White Pine Green-Up program allows White Pine County residents to discard at the Ely municipal landfill free-of-charge such items as old appliances and automobiles, construction waste, scrap metal and more. The landfill is located at 1003 Lackawanna Road, in Ely. Hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday through Saturday, excluding holidays.
Car and truck batteries can be discarded during regular business hours at C&B Auto Parts, 1201 Great Basin Blvd., and Wheeler Machinery Company, 1500 Ave. D, in Ely.
White Pine Green-Up is one of two programs that, combined, provide for a sustainable community-wide recycling program that helps to protect the environment, extend the life of the local landfill, and reduce or eliminate illegal dumping on the public lands. White Pine Green Recycling is the other.
White Pine Green-Up is a cooperative effort by the City of Ely and Ely District.
