Please Help Increase Putnam County's Recycling Rate
The Sanitation Department, along with Waste Pro, is working hard to increase the County's recycling rate. We would appreciate County wide participation to help achieve our goal. You can help by recycling instead of throwing away. Here is how you can participate.

Place these items curbside in your blue bin; newspapers, magazines, catalogs, phone books, beverage & food cans, aerosol cans, plastic beverage & soap bottles, and corrugated cardboard OR you can take these items to one of our convenient drop-off sites at...
  • Central Landfill - accepts all items mentioned above.
  • Huntington & Interlachen Solid Waste & Recycling Centers - accept oil, paint, tires, batteries, aluminum cans, plastic, steel cans, and glass.
  • John's Metals - accepts aluminum cans and scrap metals.
  • Hill's Hardware - accepts aluminum cans.
  • Humane Society Thrift Center & Bostwick Community Center - accepts newspaper.
  • Kay Larkin Airport, Chiappini's Gas Station, and Long's Garage - accepts oil.
  • Cans and bottles should be emptied, rinsed, have tops removed, and flattened to save space. Cardboard should be cut in 2' X 3' lengths, flattened, and placed under the blue bin if necessary.
  • You can also help by spreading the word about recycling.
