Johnson County Recycling Programs

Recycling programs are designed to both reduce the amount of waste that must be incinerated or stored in Johnson County landfills, and to minimize the environmental impact of disposing hazardous materials, heavy metals, and other potential contaminants. Johnson County curbside collection of recyclables involves refuse collection vehicles collecting certain recyclable materials from individual households along established routes.

Recycling Curbside Collection

Johnson County curbside collection programs may accept paper, cardboard, glass, aluminum, and certain types of plastic. Many counties, local governments, and private collection companies offer single stream collection. Single stream recyclable collection uses a single container for all accepted recyclable materials. The mixed materials are collected and hauled to a Johnson County Recycling Center where they are separated by type before further processing. Other curbside collection programs may require that recyclables be sorted by type of material at the curb. Johnson County curbside collection programs may include commercial properties and multi-family properties where recyclable materials must be separated and placed in designated dumpsters. In addition to glass, paper, and other common recyclable materials, some Johnson County recycling programs may offer special collection programs for materials that cannot be placed in curbside recycling bins, such as used motor oil, batteries, electrics, e-waste, and tires.

Johnson County Recycling Drop-Off Sites

Johnson County drop-off sites are available for recyclable materials at transfer stations, landfills, and other facilities. These sites provide marked containers designated for each type of recyclable material.
