The Right Thing. The Smart Thing.

Our goal is to see Floyd County recycle as much material as possible to keep it out of local landfills.

The Floyd County Solid Waste Management District is the local county‚Äôs authority for information about recycling, yard waste, and household hazardous waste. Our local district tracks material that is recycled, processed, or sent for final disposal within a landfill or incinerated.  Solid waste is any unwanted product that is not a liquid or gas in our surroundings and from our daily products.

In 1990, Public Law 10-1990 was passed by the Indiana General Assembly. This law made it possible for changes in the existing solid waste law. Now each district had to develop solid waste management plans, with guidance from the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM). Currently the IDEM continues to work with SWMBs, in effort to promote pollution prevention and recycling.

Where to Recycle?

There are two Recycling Centers in Floyd County where residents can drop off recyclable materials on specific days.
