Is curbside recycling available in Montgomery County?
Unfortunately no, the City and County do not have any municipal waste or recycling pick-up services. All pick-up service is provided by third party operators such as Airborne Disposal, Queen City, Waste Management, etc. and at this time no operators are picking-up recycling. All recycling must be brought by residents to convenience centers or the main Landfill location on Dover Road.
How do I use the convenience centers?
The centers are open to all residents of Montgomery County. You may simply enter the center and deposit your waste and recycling. Residency is verified by your vehicles license plate. If you have just moved to Clarksville, and do not yet have a Montgomery County plate, you may be asked to show proof of residency such as your Bi-County user fee invoice, a utility bill or a rental agreement.
Why is it necessary to sort our recyclables?
Some communities have what is called single stream recycling. This is where all recyclable materials can be placed into one bin. Those materials are then taken to a sorting facility with specialized machinery that separates and bales each individual material type. Bi-County does not have a sorting facility, therefore each material must be separated into individual bins that are then taken to Bi-County for baling.
