HHW DAY AT BLOUNT COUNTY RECYCLING
Our first "Household Hazardous Waste Day" this past Saturday was a huge success with a grand total of 402 visitors for the day.
Delores Colada is showing us a sample of grocery bag recycling that several Churches and Nursing Homes in the area participate in to make sleeping mats for the homeless. We were very impressed with the quality and workmanship of these mats. It takes 800-1,000 bags to make one mat and there are many detailed steps involved to finish the product. They are 3 feet wide and 6 feet long, they are even machine washable and very durable. This is recycling at its best right here in Blount County!
Be Sure To Check Back Often We will be adding a permanent HHW container to our facility as well as collection for used oil and antifreeze very soon
Stop by and meet Charlie our onsite Recycle Center Operator
Bulbs and Paints We are excited to announce that we are now accepting 4ft and 8ft intact "Fluorescent Bulbs" and "Oil Based Paints" for recycling. Please check back often for updates
Please Help Us Keep Your Recycle Center Clean. NO dumping allowed, NO after hours drop off allowed.
We love to recycle in Blount County!
