Suspension of Recycle Trailer Program


Effective July 1, 2019, Butler County will be suspending the Recycle Trailer Program until further notice.

For the past year, it has become increasingly difficult to find markets for the recycled products that are collected through the Butler County Recycle Trailer Program.  The main reason for this is foreign countries are no longer accepting recyclables from the United States.

This is not only a problem for Butler County and the City of El Dorado (who processes the recyclables for us), but a state and nationwide issue.  The County is now paying more per ton to businesses that have taken our recyclables in the past than it costs to landfill those recyclables.  As a result, the Butler County Commission made the decision to suspend the Recycle Trailer Program as of July 1, 2019.
