Recycling

The Memphis County Solid Waste department works hard to provide environmentally responsible collection and disposal of trash, yard waste, and recycling. Starting in 2015, we began to offer 96-gallon carts to our solid waste customers. So please join me in this recycling effort, whether at work, on the go, or with our new 96-gallon recycling carts.
