Guidelines
Upon arriving at Williamson County Recycle Center, our personnel will unload, segregate, and weigh the material.  We will also discuss what you have brought and if there are items you can safely dispose of in another manner.  If a person would like to take their chemicals back we will be more than happy to reload material as it was delivered. Below you will find guidelines for transporting and also the acceptance of ordinary recyclables.  If you have any questions please call us at 512-864-3240.

Business Material
We can only accept household material at our facility.  A household is defined by TCEQ as a “Single and multiple residences, hotels and motels, bunkhouses, ranger stations, crew quarters, campgrounds, picnic grounds, and day-use recreational areas”.  If you have business material, our parent company, PA-jer Company can assist you.

Recyclable Guidelines (Update September 18, 2017)
For almost ten years WCRC accepted ordinary recyclables from citizens of Williamson and surrounding counties for free. Unfortunately with recent changes in the recycling market due to China and the city of Temple acquiring the operations of our recycling vendor we have been forced to no longer offer full blown recycling of recyclables. We still accept moving boxes and metal for recycling due to having an outlet for these items. The moving boxes we receive we give out to individuals for free. We do ask that the boxes be broken down for ease of storage and the reuse. Thank you for your assistance.

    • Good Morning Mr. Craigo. We can accept alkaline batteries at our facility, the cost is $2.00 per pound. However on alkaline batteries we do not recycle, they are sent to an industrial landfill. Unlike a traditional landfill such as what is in Williamson County, an Industrial landfill has additional liners and security to prevent future contamination. If it is a Rechargeable battery we accept them for free because we are a participant in the Call2Recycle Program. If you have additional questions feel free to call us at 512-864-3240.
