Recycling and Solid Waste Disposal
There is no charge for recycling. We are accepting recyclable items at the Shelby County Recycling Center and the Seventh Street Shelbyville location, currently self service drop off only.
Please separate items into one of the following categories and drop into the appropriate bin.
There’s a small fee to dispose of your non-recyclable materials. When you enter the solid waste disposal area our automated scales weigh your vehicle. After you put your trash in the dumpsters you are weighed again on the way out. You can pay with credit card or debit card. We also offer reusable County Cards which may be purchased with cash. There is a fee of 3.5 cents per pound so, for example, 20 pounds of trash costs only 70 cents.
Tire and brush disposal services are available only to residents of Shelby County. Contractors disposing of brush must fill out a Residential Verification Form. To download or print the form, select the following link: Residential Verification Form
Document shredding has been suspended until further notice.
Due to changing markets we are currently not able to accept TVs.
Recycling markets change and may affect what materials we can accept without notice.
