Farmersville has an award winning drop-off and curbside recycling program. It is a program that is more comprehensive and better organized than programs found in communities much larger than Farmersville! Since the city adopted the Curbside Single Stream Recycling Program, recycling in Farmersville has increased from 18.45 pounds per household to over 20 pounds per household. The blue 95 gallon recycling carts allow homeowners to recycle without sorting. Curbside recycling date is every other Wednesday.
The Drop-off Recycling Center is located at the City Maintenance lot on South Johnson Street. It is open every Saturday from 8 AM to 11 AM. Here is a list of the many items we can accept for recycling and remember no amount is too small--each item is important.
