Drop-Off Single-Stream Recycling
Recognizing the need for convenient recycling in communities and rural areas without curbside recycling, Macon County Environmental Management Department and respective Macon County Boards support ten drop-off recycling sites.
Residents of Macon County, Illinois may deposit recyclable items in drop-off recycling boxes that are located throughout the county. Both curbside recycling and drop-off recycling are collected in a single-stream so that items, such as paper, plastic bottles and tin cans, do not have to be separated by type but may be collected when co-mingled.
Items accepted include steel and aluminum cans, flattened cardboard, paper, plastic containers #1-5 & 7, books, junk mail and more. No glass is accepted at the drop-off locations.Printable List of County-Operated Sites & Accepted Items
