Maury County is asking each resident to help lower the Solid Waste Land filling costs which will beneficially effect each person’s taxes and improve the environment by recycling rather than disposing of valuable materials in garbage and trash. Recycling also makes good sense on a national basis as for every ton of aluminum recycled saves the equivalent of 35.6 barrels of crude oil which we will not have to buy from foreigners; and for every ton of paper/cardboard recycled we will save the equivalent of 4100 kilowatt hours of electricity, 17 trees, 3 cubic yards of landfill space, 60 pounds of air pollution contaminants, and 7000 gallons of water.

Maury County currently provides recycling receptacles at each of its 9 convenience centers. Maury County also has two recycle centers located at the corner of West 8th and Beckett (Columbia), and behind Food Lion (SpringHill).
