Recently some great changes have been made to recycling procedures at Alexander County Convenience Sites. Residents no longer have to sort household recyclables! That’s right, all paper, metal/aluminum cans, plastic containers, and glass go into the same bin. The only material to be sorted is cardboard. More plastics are also accepted now including cool whip/butter tubs, microwave dinner trays, and other plastic containers labeled 1-7.

Of course all material needs to be clean and free of food debris.

View the recycling brochure detailing what is accepted at the Convenience Sites.

Help spread the word!

If you have any questions please contact Alexander Solid Waste Department.
