Allen County residents who live in apartments or do not have access to curbside recycling can recycle items free of charge at any of ACDEM's Community Recycling Drop-off Sites.
Drop-off Site Recycling Guidelines
Glass (clear, green, brown, blue)
Paper (any kind)
Paperboard (e.g., cereal boxes)
Plastics numbered 1-7
- Empty, rinse, and dry recyclables before placing in bin
- Flatten cardboard and bulky items
- Items should be sorted prior to drop off
- Leaving items outside of operating hours is illegal dumping
- Residential and nonprofit material only (call ACDEM for assistance with business recycling)
Dropping off material when an attendant is not present is illegal dumping and poses a danger to the public and employees.
ACDEM’s Community Recycling Drop-off Sites will be closed if the air temperature is at, around, or below zero, until the weather improves for the safety of attendants.
Drop-off hours: Tuesday-Saturday, 8 a.m.- 4:30 p.m.
