Recycle Right Opelika
Recycle Right Campaign
The City of Opelika and the Opelika Environmental Services Department are excited to rollout a new recycling campaign in hopes to grow local recycling participation and encourage citizens to Recycle Right in Opelika. As part of the campaign, a new superhero is flying into town!
The city offers two ways to recycle: Curbside and Recycling Center. Curbside is the most convenient way to recycle and it’s picked up every other week. This service is offered to Opelika citizens at only $10 a month with your first month free! Opelika has two full-service recycling centers on Jeter Avenue and 8th Avenue. During the past year, the city has upgraded its recycling center on 8th Avenue to also accept appliances, electronics, glass, used cooking oil, batteries, tires and paint.
For more information on service days/hours at our recycling centers and what is accepted in Opelika, make sure to visit our Recycling Services page!
