The Johnson County Recycling District was created by Indiana State Statute in 1991 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 pollution 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.
There are multiple ways you can contribute to a more sustainable Johnson County.

Thanks for coming to my kindergarten class today. The kids really enjoyed it! In fact, their hot ham and cheese sandwiches were wrapped in foil at lunch and they mentioned about recycling it!Allison Clark
Thank you for coming in and doing the EnviroSurvivor program with the students. I know that they learned a lot from the experience, and they really enjoyed it. We are looking forward to doing the program again next year!Shelley Kirk

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
