We're now commingled! Recycling containers at the Jennings County Recycling Center are now set up for commingled recycling. Not only can collection trucks hold considerable more materials in a single load, but new recycling technology allows materials to be sorted later at a central location. An added bonus is that the Jennings Co. Recycling Center can now accept #3-#7 plastics along with its traditional #1-#2.
This site accepts Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) such as cleaning chemicals, oil based paints and stains, insecticides and herbicides, etc. Special collections will fall on designated Saturdays in April and August throughout the year. Please consult the downloadable brochure for your county on this website to confirm exact collection dates and times. Residents of the Southeastern Indiana Recycling District may dispose of HHW year-round (during regular business hours) at the Jefferson County Recycling Center in Madison.
SEIRD Recycle Centers no longer accept any oil-based paints and stains except on designated HHW collection days. Any unlabeled/unidentifiable items or latex paints can no longer be accepted. Fluorescent tubes and bulbs are the only HHW drop off items accepted at this recycling center during normal business hours. There is $1.00 per bulb charge for businesses and organizations.
