Recycling

Drop-Off Centers and Locations

The containers are ‘Commingled’, meaning ALL accepted items (See Below) go into this container, no separation needed.  

Recycling from business or individuals will be accepted at the Atchison County Transfer Station, 8575 Neosho Rd. on Wednesdays & Fridays 8:00am - 10:00am. This is to accommodate larger amounts of recycling that are difficult to deposit into the commingled containers. Please notify building attendant while on site that you have recycling. Questions please contact (913) 367-1666. 

Attention: All recyclables must be empty, clean, and compacted.
