The West Monroe Recycling Center will be open the first Saturday of each month, beginning in November.
The Recycling Center, located behind the West Monroe Police Department, will be open the first Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. to noon.
Through work with The Recycling Partnership, the West Monroe Recycling Center has been able to purchase needed equipment to expand services to the public. The Recycling Center is generally open Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. The center is a free, self-serve facility that accepts the following recyclable materials: plastics 1 and 2, cardboard, aluminum, metal cans and glass.
Since opening in 2018, the Recycling Center has collected more than 1.3 million pounds of cardboard and plastic materials. The center is now able to accept glass items which are ground into a fine sand for landscaping and sandbags.
