Keeping it green since ’92!

The Marshall County Recycling Center was established in 1992 in an effort to reduce unnecessary waste in our landfills. Eight transfer stations are available for your convenience throughout the county, in addition to our main facility located at 837 Benton-Briensburg Rd in Benton.

Special Events

Spring Clean Up Day

One a year, we offer a a Spring Clean Up Day. During this time, public can bring items that we normally don’t accept, such as wood, vinyl, siding and more, for recycling. Please call our facility is you are unsure about your item.

Trash Sculpture Contest

Recycling doesn’t have to be just separating newspaper from aluminum cans. You can be creative as well. The Marshall County Recycling center sponsors a Trash Sculpture Contest each year for school children of all ages. Home-schooled children are also welcome to join in the fun. Simply contact the center for more information.

Participants are challenged to use items would normally be discarded, and turn it into works of art. Entries are divided into four different age groups (K-2nd grade, 3rd grade-5th grade, middle school, and high school). Each age group is awarded prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. 1st place winners will have their sculptures put on display at the Children’s Art Center!
