Recycling Center


2016 10 13 MacGrayRecyclingSign

Recycling is officially easy in the City of Prattville! Effective August 26, 2019, rolling your garbage can out for collection is all it takes to recycle. The City of Prattville's Sanitation Division of Public Works is excited to have a single-stream recycling program for our community and have less waste going into the landfill.

On August 20, 2019, the City Council passed a resolution to authorize the Mayor to enter into a Solid Waste Agreement with RePower South (RPS) in Montgomery, Alabama. "RPS offers an alternative, advanced recycling, recovery, and clean energy for a sustainable waste and energy future. We do this by processing landfill-bound municipal solid waste and recovering recyclable materials not captured by traditional programs."
