Charleston Recycling Center

The Recycling Center located on Guy Fenter Drive off South School Street opened in August 2005. Items currently being accepted include cardboard, paper, as well as plastic bottles and aluminum and tin cans. Please rinse out and flatten your aluminum and tin cans. Please remove lids from plastic bottles, rinse them and flatten them. Please remove any plastic cards from junk mail. Corrugated boxes and other cardboard should be flattened. Boxes can also be nested for recycling.

The Recycling Center was paid for in part by a series of grants from the Recycling Branch of the Solid Waste Management Division of ADEQ.
