How to Recycle in Tullahoma
Residential curbside recycling for plastic (we now accept plastics #1 and #2), aluminum cans, tin and bi-metal food cans, newsprint and corrugated cardboard is collected from home addresses weekly coinciding with regularly scheduled garbage collection days. Please:
- Sort and bag items per category
- Break down corrugated cardboard
Place recyclables curbside by 6 am on the morning of your pick-up.
Commercial cardboard is collected from commercial customers at no cost to the business.
Recyclables should be separated by material and left at the curb. People use a variety of different methods, including:
- A single container with the materials separated in individual bags
- Plastic containers containing separated materials
- Stackable totes of individual materials
- Containers that separate the materials into individual bags which can be placed at the curb
Recyclables consist of:
- Aluminum and tin cans
- Fluorescent bulbs
- Metals (including refrigerators, stoves, etc.)
- Transmission fluids
- Used motor oil
- Water based paint
Wood, tires, and car parts other than used batteries, should not be brought to the center.
