Did You Know? The City of Prattville Recycles

March 7, 2012

The City of Prattville operates a drop off recycling facility at 122 Ridgewood Road. It is located off Martin Luther King Drive, next to Mac Gray Park.

There is a trailer on site where residents may place their recyclables. The facility currently accepts:

  • Cardboard,
  • Paper (all types),
  • Aluminum,
  • Steel or tin cans,
  • Plastic marked with recycling codes 1 and 2.

These items do not have to be sorted and can be presented in the same container. No hazardous materials (i.e., car batteries or oil, paint, pesticides, etc.) are accepted.

Hours of operation are Wednesday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Prattville residents who present a current water bill may drop off yard debris or household garbage at the Recycling Center on Saturdays when there is a City employee on site to facilitate these drop offs.

Mayor Bill Gillespie has recently pulled together a Citizen Recycling Committee. This group is researching programs in other Alabama cities, options for Prattville, and ultimately striving to make the program more convenient and thus, more successful.

"Every item that is recycled is an item that does not go into our landfill," stated Mayor Gillespie. "My family recycles and I would like Prattville to be known for our Recycling Program. We're looking into programs that include composting yard debris, curbside recycling or multiple drop off locations, and actively recycling within every City Department."

More information about our Recycling Program can be found in our Departments, Sanitation section. Within the Residents, Be A Good Neighbor section, there are resources for disposing of hazardous items as well as ideas for alternatives that do not create hazardous waste.
