Recycling Centers

Recycling Sign editedPrattvillians who present their current water bill listing sanitation charges may also bring their yard debris and garbage to the Recycling Facility ONLY on Saturdays when Sanitation personnel are on site to facilitate the drop off. This facility is located at 122 Ridgewood Road. NO hazardous materials, batteries, oil, or tree stumps will be accepted at this site. Requirements concerning the bagging of leaves and grass clippings must be observed. The Recycling Center is open Monday - Saturday and the signage will be adjusted soon to reflect our new schedule.

What can be recycled:

  • Cardboard
  • Paper (all types, including newspaper, office paper, flyers and magazines)
  • Aluminum
  • Steel or tin cans
  • Plastic (recycling codes 1 & 2)

Glass is no longer accepted at the Recycling Center.

Because the landfill is now operated by a private waste management company, there may be a $10 or more charge for items brought in by citizens. For additional information about recycling, contact the Sanitation Division Monday-Friday from 7:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. at 361-3611. For additional information about the landfill, contact Allied Waste Monday-Friday from 7 a.m. - 4 p.m. at 361-6832.

Due to the overwhelming success of our satellite-recycling site currently located at Fire Station 3, the City of Prattville will be relocating this service to Overlook Memorial Park effective August 3rd. The high traffic and high volume of material being recycling has created a bit of a logistical issue for our Fire Department.

We placed the bins at Fire Station 3 as a test site. This new location will also be a test site. We are looking for more locations and would like public input or suggestions. We recognize that some areas of Prattville recycle more than others, but we encourage everyone to recycle and minimize their carbon footprint for the good of our environment and to keep unnecessary items out of our landfill.

Moving the recycling bins to Overlook Memorial Park will provide ease of access in virtually the same area of town. Our employees frequent the park for maintenance and will be able to effectively maintain the monitoring of the bins that our dedicated fire personnel have previously provided.

"This is a positive problem to have," stated Mayor Bill Gillespie, Jr. "The bins are highly utilized and we call this additional location a success. As with any program, we review and make tweaks over time to be sure that we are providing good service to our citizens in the most efficient manner."
