When recycling in the city, we offer a few privileged opportunities and locations where you may do so.
PAPER, CARDBOARD, & PLASTIC
To recycle paper, cardboard, & plastic, a green trailer offered by Innovative Industries of Carthage, MO is located on a grassy lot just off the southeast corner of the Square near 5th St / Center St. The trailer is separated into 3 different compartments for each specific type of recyclable item. The trailer is swapped out on a monthly basis and we kindly ask our folks utilizing this privileged opportunity to not place trash in this trailer to help keep the area and equipment clean.
APPLIANCES, E-WASTE, AND LARGE SCRAP METAL
While the City does not currently offer a designated location for recycling appliances,
E-Waste and large scrap metal items, there are a few opportunities provided to help our folks rid of these unwanted items:
