Marshall County Recycling

The Marshall County Recycling Center is dedicated to the recycling needs of the people of Marshall County. Providing citizens with convenience and quality service is our number one goal.

Marshall County Recycling employee Mitch Phillips assists a resident with tires during one of our Tire Amnesty Days. Tire Amnesty Day is held once a year, usually in early spring. During this time, any amount of tires may be brought to the Recycling Center. If you have a substantial amount of tires on your property, you may be eligible for an on-site cleanup.

The Trash Sculpture Contest is a program that challenges children in grades K-12 to take household trash and turn it into a work of art. Sponsored by the Regional Recycling Corporation, the Trash Sculpture Contest gives kids not only a way to express their artistic side through trash, but also a chance to win prize money. Sculptures are graded on their use of materials, variety of materials used, and originality. Prizes are rewarded on three different levels: school level, county level, and regional level. One student has the possibility of winning top honors in all categories.

Marshall County Recycling offers many recycling opportunities for the residents of Marshall County. These include: cardboard, newsprint, office paper, plastic drink containers, printer cartridges, and used oil. The recycling center also accepts used tires (5 maximum per day), furniture, and appliances (excluding white goods such as refrigerators, hot water heaters, etc.). White goods can be taken to Clean Earth Recycling in Gilbertsville. Their phone number is 362-0145.

Demolition materials such as shingles, treated wood, and items removed during remodeling efforts (such as bathtubs, vanities, and sinks) must be taken to the Wastepath Sanitary Landfill, formerly LWD, in Calvert City. There is a cost for disposing of these items. Please call 395-5002 for pricing information. If you have an item that is not listed and are not sure where it is to be taken, you can call the Recycling Center Monday through Friday from 7:00 AM to 3:30 PM at 527-2743.

Many schools and businesses in the area take advantage of the cardboard and paper recycling opportunities offered by the Marshall County Recycling Center. If your school or business disposes of cardboard and paper products on a daily basis and you would be interested in recycling, please contact the Recycling Center and we will be happy to add you to our list. By joining our list, you will receive items such as bags, boxes, and containment pens for your recyclable goods. Our friendly staff will come to your business and collect your recyclables once a week or as needed.
