Attention Covington residents and businesses! We're taking your old or broken electronics, papers you need shredded, and polystyrene foam (think Styrofoam peanuts or packing materials)! 

2024 Recycling Drop Off Event

Saturday, June 22nd, 10 am - 1 pm

@ Holmes High School - entrance on Madison Avenue

Keep Covington Beautiful is contracting with professionally certified recyclers to handle your hard-to-dispose-of items. NAID-Certified Shred It will destroy your documents on-site, and then turn them into new paper to further protect you and the environment. R2 RIOS Certified Cobalt responsibly disassembles and disposes of all of your electronic waste, which can contain hazardous materials like lead, cadmium, or mercury. The polystyrene foam will be brought to Eco Development where it is condensed and made into new usable products.
