Rutherford County is committed now more than ever to recycling. 

The single stream method makes it easier to recycle and saves trips to Nashville. 

This video from Waste Management showcases their Salt Lake City, Utah facility, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSLBt2NEej0

These are the same processes and equipment that are utilized at their River Hills Materials Recovery Facility that Rutherford County utilizes with all of our recoverable materials.

The single stream method works.

Save the date. 

Recycle Rutherford Right!
