The revenue generated from the sale of the recyclables collected in most curbside recycling programs simply does not cover the cost associated with picking up, sorting and selling the materials. Therefore, recyclers must charge a fee to provide the service. The costs associated with offering curbside service diminish significantly as more households in a community participate.
Curbside recycling is offered to most residents of Hendricks County through Ray’s Trash Service, a privately owned company based in Clayton. The company accepts newspaper, glass bottles and jars, aluminum and steel cans, newspaper and #1 through #7 plastics in its curbside recycling program. Residents should contact Ray’s to subscribe to the service.
