Curbside Recycling Service Resumes on Monday, August 2nd

Hopkinsville Solid Waste Enterprise General Manager Tony Sicari announced that the Curbside Recycling Program will resume services on Monday, August 2, 2021.  For only $5.50 per month, residential customers will enjoy their own personal recycling containers and convenient weekly service on regular garbage collection days.

For new customers, signing up for service is easy!  Simply visit hoptown.org/recycle or call Hopkinsville Solid Waste at (270) 887-6245 or (270) 887-6244. 

If you’re an existing customer, you will be automatically reenrolled for service, so no additional action is necessary.  The Solid Waste team is delivering containers to customers where needed and account charges will not resume until September.

Sicari said, “Recycling really makes a difference and there is no better time to join local efforts to conserve and expand the lifespan of our landfill.”  He added, “While curbside recycling services will return to normal operations, drop off locations will remain discontinued until further notice.”

Acceptable curbside recycling items include plastics, metals, and paper products such as PETE #1, HPDE #2, aluminum cans, steel (tin) cans, newsprint, office paper, corrugated cardboard, fiber board, magazines, catalogs, junk mail, and telephone books.  Recyclables do not need to be separated.  Instead, place items in containers in loose form. Please do not place plastic bags in the recycling containers as we do not have the means to recycle these items.  

For additional information, please contact Hopkinsville Solid Waste at (270) 887-6245 or (270) 887-6244 or visit hoptown.org/recycle.
