Recycling Drop-Off Centers

Crushed-Aluminum-Can-on-WhiteThe District operates 24-hour Recycling Drop-off Centers located in Lizton (map), Coatesville (map), Stilesville (map) and now, North Salem (map).

Residents are encouraged to consider subscribing to curbside recycling service through a private recycling provider. Regulations prohibit the District from locating Recycling Drop-off Centers in geographical locations where curbside recycling is available. Currently, Ray’s Trash Service and Republic Services offer convenient curbside recycling service to much of Hendricks County.

Acceptable Items:
PAPER: Office paper, construction paper, newspaper, junk mail, magazines, catalogs, corrugated cardboard, telephone books, food boxes, shredded paper (must be bagged).
GLASS: Clear, brown and green glass that held food or beverages. (No ceramics, Pyrex, plate glass, or mirrors.)

Important Reminders:

Paper Retriever Program:
Paper Retriever bins are located throughout the community.  The bins can most often be found near schools and churches in the area.  Newspaper, office paper, junk mail, magazines and catalogs are accepted in the Paper Retriever bins and the not-for-profits that host the bins receive funding based on the amount of paper collected.
