Volunteer to Recycle

Help us keep Hardin County beautiful and reduce the amount of waste entering landfills when you recycle. Even if you don’t litter, materials that enter landfills build up over time, wasting resources and polluting the air, ground, and water over time. We provide convenient recycling bins at each solid waste center to help protect Hardin County and our beautiful planet for the future.

Recycling Hardin County

We accept accept metal, cardboard, used oil, and paint for recycling, which may be bagged separately by category and dropped off in the orange bins at any of our convenience centers. Please flatten cardboard before placing in the cardboard bin and note that we are not currently accepting glass, paper, or plastics for recycling. By separating recyclables from garbage, glass, hazardous materials, and recyclables of other materials, you help us to lower costs and contamination rates for a more successful program.


We also accept electronics at our full-service centers! E-waste includes items like computers & computer components, DVD & VCR players, TVs, video game systems, and other electronic devices. These can be disposed of at the appropriate center during regular operating hours.
