The City of Hendersonville offers a free curbside recycling program to customers. Henderson County accepts plastic containers, metal cans, glass bottles and jars and paper, cartons, and cardboard at the Convenience Center. This allows our customers to recycle these materials curbside.
Recycling will be collected on the same day as garbage for all customers. Customers should set their recycling carts/bins out prior to 7 a.m. on the same day as their brush and garbage pickup. Please do not place your container on the sidewalk. If additional carts or bins are needed please contact the Public Works Department at (828) 697-3084.
In addition to mixed paper, cardboard and most plastic bottles, we also accept clean aluminum foil and foil pie plates.
All materials are taken to the Henderson County Transfer Station or a new materials recovery facility to be recycled.
