The trailers located in a chain link fenced area due south of City Hall are open from 7am to 6pm, Monday through Friday for your use. Due to the continued abuse of this facility, we have had to limit our hours of operation.
These recycling trailers were purchased with funds obtained through a Solid Waste District "O" grant and bins are labeled as follows:
#1 - #6 Plastic (these may be mixed): Please check the bottoms of your containers to make sure that they meet these requirements. Please rinse out the containers that may have contained food.
NOTE: WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING PLASTIC BAGS OF ANY KIND! You may contact retailers in the Springfield area for recycling purposes (i.e.: Wal-Mart or Target).
Aluminum: This includes beverage cans and clean aluminum banking pans. You can also recycle your aluminum at the Rogersville Senior Center collection site located at 100 E. Center Street (across from the First Baptist Church) or in the Rogersville Pack 46 Cub Scouts trailer in the City's recycling area.
Tin: Please wash all food cans (people or dog/cat) before placing in the recycling container.
Glass: Please make sure to rinse our all food or beverage glassware before placing in the recycling container. Dishes and glass drink ware is not recyclable.
The Cardboard trailer is for corrugated cardboard only.
The paper bins are provided by Nestle Purina and are used in manufacturing "Yesterday's News" pet litter.
Your good used clothes may be dropped off in the Fair Haven bins (little green houses).

How do the Best Buy recycling programs work?
Customers can get rid of their old or unwanted appliances and electronics in several ways:
- Recycling kiosks — Every U.S. Best Buy store has kiosks, just inside the front doors, to drop off rechargeable batteries, wires, cords, cables and plastic bags.
- Recycling in store at the Customer Service counter — Best Buy stores accept most electronics, with a few exceptions. See the State-specific recycling information section on the the Electronics and Appliances Recycling page to view program details for your area.
- Appliance and TV haul-away and recycling options — Best Buy will haul away a major appliance or TV from your home for a fee of $14.99 when a replacement product is purchased and delivered by Geek Squad® or Best Buy Home Delivery. A $14.99 service fee will be charged for each appliance that is relocated within the delivery address.
- Reclaimed product from trade-in — If products cannot be refurbished or resold, Best Buy will ensure the products are responsibly recycled.
