Yard Waste Recycling Centers

The District operates two Yard Waste Recycling Centers that accept woody waste (brush, limbs, firewood, etc.), grass clippings, leaves, and other organic matter from Hendricks County households. Material collected at the centers will be recycled into mulch. The Centers are open from April through November; closed for major holidays. Fees are charged for using the centers. Cash and checks are the only payment methods we can accept.
