County Recycling Events

Madison County Recycling Collections

As part of the County's Resource Management Program, the Building & Zoning Department periodically hosts free, one-day recycling collections for Madison County residents. These events provide an opportunity to recycle or properly dispose of waste that cannot be handled through curbside pick-up programs, including household hazardous waste and electronic waste. Please browse the sections below for information on upcoming events. 

Please note that while all of our events are free for Madison County residents, appointments are required.
