Recycling

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
  • Cardboard

Things you CAN NOT recycle

  • Dirty or Greasy paper plates, napkins
  • Styrofoam
  • 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!
