It’s hard to believe that materials that are so rich in organic matter and micronutrients could ever be called “waste”. But, we understand that not everyone has the time, space or inclination to compost. If you are looking to clear things like weeds, tree trimmings, plant materials, grass clippings and leaves from your yard, we have a place for you to recycle them.
The District operates two Yard Waste Recycling Centers for your convenience in Brownsburg and Plainfield. The sites are open from April through November and are to be used by Hendricks County residents to recycle yard waste from their households. Businesses are not to use these facilities for material they may generate through their operations.
Only organic material is accepted at these facilities. Tree stumps, sod, soil, building materials and plastic bags cannot be deposited at the Yard Waste Recycling Centers. Firewood may be left at the Centers free-of-charge for others to pick up to use. The material collected at the Centers is ultimately processed into mulch. Customers are responsible for unloading all materials.
Wood chips are usually available for free pick-up at the Brownsburg Yard Waste Recycling Center. Residents are urged to call ahead to confirm availability and are responsible for loading and hauling the wood chips.
