Recycle Program

The Recycling program,started in 2011, is designed to be a benefit to the whole community.  We have made an effort to make the recycling program accessible to everyone in the county by taking collection trailers to different communities.  The towns in which we collect from are Hamilton, Severy, and Eureka. We have a mixed recycling trailer out at the county shop located at 510 S. Jefferson. There are also wire framed baskets designed to hold large amounts of cardboard.

 HAMILTON--- Full time location West of fire barn- 12 Main Street

SEVERY--- Full time location located across the street from City Hall- 100 Kansas Ave.

Every Wednesday & Thursday 8:00am-4:30pm at GW County Shop or whenever the green trailer is out.
