Where do my recyclables go?

After Republic Services trucks pick up your recyclables, they head to a processing facility in Hazelwood, called a Materials Recovery Facility. The processing involves a fast, efficient separation technology which quickly divides materials into separate groups for recycling. If you have any questions, please contact Republic Services at 636-255-6142.
