Residents have been recycling for over twenty years in the Guthrie County area. During this time, over 90,000 tons of materials have been collected from the curb or recycling drop boxes and have eventually ended up at the recycling center in Carroll. At the recycling center, the materials are sorted, processed and sent to a mill or manufacturer where they are made into something "new."
It is very important that every resident in the area recycle the right way. Please remember to rinse all containers and put them in the bottom of your recycling bin. Do NOT mix paper products with your containers. If your materials are dirty or paper products are mixed with containers, or materials are included which are not part of the recycling program, your local hauler will be forced to treat materials in the bin as trash or will not be able to collect it. Don't waste your time and effort ... Do it right!!!
