Why do I have to pay for curbside recycling?

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe revenue generated from the sale of the recyclables collected in most curbside recycling programs simply does not cover the cost associated with picking up, sorting and selling the materials.  Therefore, recyclers must charge a fee to provide the service.  The costs associated with offering curbside service diminish significantly as more households in a community participate.

Residents are encouraged to consider subscribing to curbside recycling service through a private recycling provider.  Currently, Ray’s Trash Service and Republic Services offer convenient curbside recycling service to much of Hendricks County.
