The Johnson County Recycling District’s was created by Indiana State Statute in 1992 to help our community reduce, reuse, recycle and properly dispose of solid waste. The District provides services and information aimed at diverting waste from landfills and keeping hazardous materials out of our soil, air and water.
Every waste reduction, reuse or recycling effort you make extends the life of a landfill, improves the environment, reduces pollutions and conserves natural resources. As of the 2010 United States Census, there are 139,654 people, 52,242 households, and 37,711 families residing in the county.

Thanks for all you do with the organizations you help, the classes you offer and the educational programs for children. So much more than a drop-off center . You guys rock!Tara Rucker
As I get older, my doctor requires me to get on and off different medications; and there are times I'm left with unfinished bottles. I Googled places near me to dispose of the unused medication and was happy to see Johnson County Recycling lists old medicine multiple drop off locations.Jan Anderson
Tox Box is so convenient. It seems like the painting projects around our house are never ending. It is great knowing that Johnson County Recycling's Tox Box drop off won't let those empty cans end up in a landfill or worse, our water systems.Justin Morris
