How & Where to Recycle

Haywood County accepts recycled goods at our 10 convenience centers throughout the county, as well as the Materials Recovery Facility in Clyde. The convenience centers are staffed with Consolidated Waste Services employees from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday, with some locations closed on either Tuesday or Thursday. Two locations, Cruso and Fines Creek,  only operate Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Residential solid waste is accepted at each center in compactors.

If you live inside town limits, place your recyclable materials  at the curb on your pickup days.  

Recycling Process

Recyclables are hauled from the convenience centers and towns to our Materials Recovery Facility. From there, they are shipped to Sonoco Recycling (formerly American Recycling) in Candler  and Curbside Management in Asheville to be sorted and sold.
