Below is a list of items we will be accepting at HHW
NOW OPEN! We are now open and ready to collect your Household Hazardous Waste, Used Oil and Antifreeze!
Attention! Please do not throw your household trash in the recycle containers. We are a "Recycle" facility, not a garbage dump. If you see someone throwing trash in the containers please help us keep our facility open and clean by letting the Attendant know.
We have lots of information listed on signage and fliers to help you know what items we accept, if you are unsure PLEASE see the Attendant.
We are excited about our new "Newspaper" recycle container. Stop by to see it and bring plenty of newspaper to fill it up.
Delores Colada is showing us a sample of grocery bag recycling that several Churches and Nursing Homes in the area participate in to make sleeping mats for the homeless. We were very impressed with the quality and workmanship of these mats. It takes 800-1,000 bags to make one mat and there are many detailed steps involved to finish the product. They are 3 feet wide and 6 feet long, they are even machine washable and very durable. This is recycling at its best right here in Blount County!
Stop by and meet Rick our onsite Recycle Center Operator
Bulbs and Paints We are excited to announce that we are now accepting 4ft and 8ft intact "Fluorescent Bulbs" and "Oil Based Paints" for recycling.
PLEASE NOTE: Latex or water based paints are NOT recyclable. Dry the paint with kitty litter, sawdust, etc. then dispose of in trash. Please check back often for updates
Please Help Us Keep Your Recycle Center Clean. NO dumping allowed, NO after hours drop off allowed.
We love to recycle in Blount County!
