Drop-Off Recycling


Don't receive the city of Tuscaloosa's curbside recycling service because you live in an apartment, own a business or live outside the Tuscaloosa City limits? You can still recycle - FOR FREE - at any of the drop off locations. 

Recycling drop off trailers have been strategically placed around Tuscaloosa County.

Note: Drop-off recycling trailers are for recycled materials ONLY and are not garbage dumpsters.

The trailers and contents within are property of the City of Tuscaloosa. Groups or individuals caught tampering or taking items from the trailers could face prosecution.

Groups or individuals caught dumping garbage or non-recyclable items could face a $500 litter fine and associated court costs.
