#AskJAXTDY: Where can recyclables be dropped off?

Published on November 3, 2022 at 12:59 pm

Q: Jacksonville Today reader Marla P. has a problem when it comes to her household recyclable items: Her condo building in Jacksonville Beach only recycles paper. “I would be happy to bring my cardboard, plastics and glass to a recycling center, but I do not see any online that don’t charge for their service,” she says. “Is there no city facility where I can bring recycling?”

A: There are no municipal recycling drop-off sites at the Beaches, but the city of Jacksonville says household recyclables in Duval County can be taken to Republic Services’ North Florida Recycling Center at 7000 Imeson Road. A bin at the facility’s gate is free for residents to use from sunrise to sunset daily.
