Ray’s Trash Service and Republic Services offer curbside recycling service to much of Hendricks County. But how can you recycle if curbside service is unavailable for your residence?
Hendricks County Recycling Drop-off Centers
The Hendricks County Recycling District has four 24-hour recycling drop-off centers in Hendricks County:
- Lizton (177 W Main St)
- Coatesville (5040 Mill St)
- Stilesville (5745 US-40)
- North Salem (5 W Pearl St)
Recycling drop-off centers cannot be located in geographical locations where curbside recycling is available. Hendricks County residents are encouraged to utilize curbside recycling services where possible.
What to Recycle
Did you know that only about one third of waste created is currently diverted from incinerators or landfills? Here are the items that you can recycle through curbside service or at the recycling drop-off centers:
- Cardboard that has been broken down to take up less space
- Plastic bottles and jars
- Plastic jugs that contained food, beverage, detergent, etc.
- Metal and aluminum cans
- Milk or juice cartons; juice, broth, or wine boxes
- Glass bottles and jars that contained food or beverage
Note that all items should be loose in recycling bins (no plastic bags). Food containers should be rinsed. Lids should be removed and discarded.
There are some items that are not accepted for recycling. These include plastic bags, styrofoam/polystyrene, scrap metal, carpet, building materials, and any plastic items that are not listed as acceptable.
Ray’s Recycling provides paper recycling bins throughout the community, often near schools and churches, that you are welcome to use. Items accepted in these bins are: newspaper, flattened cardboard, junk mail, magazines, office paper, and catalogs.
