Recycling Guide

Now Accepting Glass

Yadkin County now accepts green and blue glass at the landfill and convenience sites. This is something that Yadkin County has not done in the last eight years. Make sure that you do not bring windshields, cookware, drinking glasses, or ceramics because we do not accept these items for recycling. Please make sure that your glass is rinsed before you bring it to recycle.
