RECYCLING INFO Update as of February 2019

Hide-A-Way Hill currently has two pickups per week (Monday and Thursday).  Athens-Hocking Recycling is unable to schedule any additional pickups during the week.

To help maximize space, please flatten cardboard boxes before putting them in the recycling bins. 

Athens-Hocking Recycling does not accept the following due to contamination issues:

  • Styrofoam

  • Electronic Waste                            

  • Food Waste

  • Books

  • Lightbulbs

  • CDs and DVDs

  • Batteries

  • Chemicals

  • Mirrors and window glass

  • Plastic grocery bags, bread bags or sandwich bags

  • Ceramics

  • Shrink wrap

  • Toys

Other recycling tips:

  • Place all recycling in container loosely (DO NOT BAG RECYCLING)

  • Do not place half-empty jars or pizza leftovers in the box; Rinse/Clean all recycling – it does not have to be completely clean, but at least rinsed.

  • Items smaller than a business card cannot be sorted and should go into the trash.

  • Cardboard, aluminum cans, aluminum foil, steel cans and plastic bottles are worth the extra effort it sometimes takes to recycle them.

  • Medical waste is NOT recyclable and is dangerous when placed in mixed recycling.

  • Batteries, lightbulbs, electronics, books and scrap metal should NOT be placed with the mixed recycling.  They can be taken to the Center for Hard to Recycle Materials at 9009 Sand Ridge Road at Route 13 outside of Logan. 

When in doubt, throw it out!
