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. Our recycling equipment consists of trailers which have ten separate bins for sorting different materials. There are also wire framed baskets designed to hold large amounts of cardboard.
HAMILTON---Every Monday~Friday 8am-1pm, west of fire barn on Main St.
SEVERY--- Every Thursday 6am-1pm, located at Tripco Conoco on Hwy 400
EUREKA--- Every Thursday & Friday 7:30am-3:30pm at GW County Shop
Items accepted in trailers:
Newspapers – needs to be clean and dry
Glass – containers of any kind and color, these no longer need to be sorted
Steel cans – Rinsed out
HDPE #2 – Plastic, opaque in color – milk and vinegar jugs, rinsed & the lids removed
HDPE #2 – Plastic, colored-laundry detergent bottles, rinsed & the lids removed
PETE #1 – Plastic, pop bottles, water bottles, and most clear plastics, rinsed & lids removed
Mixed Paper/Office Paper – Junk mail, office waste and any other recyclable paper
Cardboard – Corrugated and pressed cardboard (not cereal boxes)
There is always assistance available for those who need help either finding the right bin or just placing their items into the bins. The main reason that the sorting of the items is so key, is that Greenwood County pays to have these items recycled, and if they receive a trailer that is not sorted they will reject it and we will have to bring it back to Greenwood County. Please take time to help the environment and keep Greenwood County Green.
