Residential Recycling Drop-Off Locations

Canal Winchester residents may take recyclables to Waste Management's Recycling Center at 1006 Walnut St. The freestanding recycle container at the Waste Management facility is situated within the site's public parking area, and is available to Canal Winchester residents 24 hours a day at no charge.

The location accepts a variety of recyclable materials, however, due to a current downturn in the need for recycled glass products, Waste Management requests that no glass be deposited in the recycle containers at either location. Instead, residents may include glass in their regular trash. A list of accepted recyclables is posted at the recycling center.
