Operating hours for the county’s new recycling center are changing this week. Effective Tuesday, the recycling center will be open Tuesdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Located at 10311 Hwy. 146 in Livingston, the recycling center is operated by a group called Polk County Recycling & Beautification which is presently in search of volunteers for two to three-hour shifts every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. Volunteers will greet every customer, assist with their sorting questions, help customers unload and lift their recyclables and help keep the center clean.

“Volunteering at the recycling center is rewarding, meaningful and fun. Live your commitment to Polk County Recycling & Beautification by signing up at the recycling center or emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.,” Kari Miller said.

Miller, assistant to Polk County Judge Sydney Murphy, serves as the county’s liaison to the Polk County Recycling & Beautification group.

Items the center can accept include:

#1 Plastics. These include beverage bottles (rinsed and without lids) and various other clear food containers. You know it’s a #1 if it has a triangle stamped in the plastic with a “1” inside it.

#2 Plastics. These are thicker containers, like milk jugs and detergent bottles (rinsed and without lids). You know it’s a #2 if it has a triangle stamped in the plastic with a “2” inside it.

Corrugated Cardboard (clean and dry)

Aluminum Cans (empty)

Mixed Paper (envelopes, magazines, newspapers, colored paper, paper-back books, etc.) Paper should be sorted separately from all other materials.
