About the District

The Hendricks County Recycling District is dedicated to promoting recycling, waste reduction and responsible waste management within Hendricks County.

The District was formed on December 31, 2004, Crushed-Aluminum-Can-on-Whitewith the responsibility of reducing the amount of waste sent from Hendricks County to final solid waste disposal facilities. That goal is accomplished by providing waste reduction, reuse and recycling education and services to residents of the county. In addition, the District works to ensure that problem wastes are disposed of properly.

The District is managed by a nine-member Board of Directors, a Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC), three full-time employees and four part-time employees.

Free in-school educational programs are offered by the District for public and private school students from kindergarten through twelfth grade.  The District also focuses on providing adult outreach that focuses on educating residents about the opportunities for waste reduction, reuse, recycling and proper disposal in the community.

The District operates Yard Waste Recycling Centers and Recycling Drop-off Centers in the county and encourages Hendricks County residents to use the facilities.  In addition, the District sponsors five Tox-Away Days each year. These events provide an opportunity for residents to properly dispose of their Household Hazardous Wastes and problem wastes.

District staff members are eager to help answer questions regarding waste reduction, reuse, recycling or disposal.

Congratulations to our friends at the Indiana Recycling Coalition and kudos to those Hoosiers who generously donated to their mission this year! ...

Our friends at the Bartholomew County Solid Waste Management District shared this cool challenge. What a great way to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. through environmental service! If you can't find a DNR property near you, find a local park, school grounds, farm field (with permission), or roadside (adults). There are plenty of opportunities to help! Note: Make sure to take your trash home with you to be picked up with your own trash. Bags left by the side of the road are not picked up unless prior arrangements have been made.On Jan. 18, help celebrate the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by taking on the 5 gallon challenge at any DNR property across the state.

Bring a small bag or bucket to a DNR property and pick up trash as you enjoy your visit. Your small act of kindness keeps public lands and waterways healthy and beautiful for people and wildlife.

Find a property to visit on Jan. 18 at on.IN.gov/recfinder.

If you post a picture on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, tag Indiana DNR and use #bucketINtrashOUT to share your good work.
