Go Green, Person County!
We offer a curbside recycling pickup service for our Person County customers only.
Due to federal and state laws prohibiting us from dumping several household trash items in the landfill, we are offering a recycle service to help you dispose of these items, along with your other recyclables.
Things you CAN recycle
- Steel or metal cans (food cans)
- Aluminum cans (drink cans)
- Glass bottles (all colors)
- Plastic bottles (water, soda, milk, juice)
- Paper (notebook, office, junk mail, etc.)
- Newspapers and Magazines
Things you CAN NOT recycle
- Dirty or Greasy paper plates, napkins
- Waxed paper, plates, or cups
- Plastic toys
- Diapers or bathroom type paper
Fees and other info
The fee for this service is $10 per quarter ($40 a year). Recycle pick up will be the same day as your garbage. We will NOT supply a container for recycling. Items do not have to be sorted. Simply put every thing in a trash bag and place it at the road side on Sunday night.
We ran a 6 months recycling test with our family, to ensure the above plan would be feasible and it was a huge success!
