Please click here for information on this survey.
NOTICE: Due to COVID-19, the Recycling Center has been closed for the remainder of the fiscal year. You may still take Recycling to Rumpke located on Route 60.
The City of Ashland Kentucky is committed to protecting our environment and serving the community with our recycling program. The Ashland Recycling Center is located under the 13th Street Bridge.
Effective December 16, 2018, the Ashland Recycling Center is open to the City of Ashland residents and non-residents of the City who purchase an annual, numbered recycling permit for $100.*
City residents gain access to the recycle center by showing a Kentucky Driver's License with an Ashland, KY address OR a city utility bill that includes a "Garbage" charge (along with a photo ID).
Non-residents gain access by showing a numbered recycling permit.
* Recycling permits are available for a fee of $100.00 at the Ashland City Building located at 1700 Greenup Avenue, Ashland, during regular business hours. All permits are issued for one year but must be renewed annually. Permits are available throughout the year at a pro-rated cost. Commercial businesses are NOT eligible for the permit.
6am - 10am
Thursday and Friday
3pm - 7pm
8am - 4pm
Acceptable recycle materials include:
* Paper - including white paper, notebook paper, manila folders, mail/envelopes, computer paper, brown papers (grocery, cardboard), newspapers, and phone books.
* Plastic - including soda bottles, milk containers, toiletry bottles, or any bottle with the #1 or #2 printed on the bottom. Please rinse and flatten.
* Cans - including aluminum and bi-metal beverage cans, steel food/tin cans, or empty aerosol cans. Please rinse and flatten as able.
Any other materials placed in these bins will cause the dumpster to be contaminated and, in turn, must be disposed of as regular trash. This defeats the purpose of recycling and increases the expense to taxpayers. Please be mindful of the materials you place in the recycling dumpsters, for the good of the community.
