  TRI COUNTY RECYCLING CENTERS 


Sr. Claire McGowan Springfield, KY 2005

New Pioneers organized the first curbside pickup recycling program in Springfield KY, which began in 2005 as a partnership between us, the City of Springfield, and the Washington County Department of Solid Waste. Although we no longer manage the program, advocating for recycling remains important to our mission.

However, recyclable items can be dropped-off at the following locations:
