For general Solid Waste information, please contact the City by dialing 3-1-1.

There are several recycling options available to City of Knoxville residents.

​CURBSIDE SINGLE-STREAM COLLECTION

We are expanding this program! If you do not already have a curbside recycling cart please call 311 or sign up here. ​For more information about this program visit this page. 

*As of January 1st 2017 glass is no longer accepted in curbside single-stream carts. This is due to changing markets.
 
RECYCLING DROP-OFF CENTERS

The City has 5 drop-off locations that are open 24-7. These centers are staffed 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. by a Goodwill attendant. We also encourage you to take advantage of Knox County drop-off centers as well as the one on UT campus. For more information about these centers go here

*Please take your glass to these drop-off centers because it is still readily recycled when separated by color. 

​SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT FACILITY

Specialty recyclables such as carpet, used motor oil, electronics, and scrap metal, etc. can be taken to this facility.
