Cardboard & Paper Recycling

Abilene’s contractor for the processing and marketing of recyclable materials will no longer accept cardboard or paper materials. This change results in the City of Abilene no longer accepting these materials at the City recycling collection centers.

The final day to recycle cardboard & paper at Neighborhood & City Recycling centers is January 31, 2021. Thank you for your understanding.
