The City of Branson would like to remind residents and guests of its 24/7 recycle services and encourages everyone to recycle the cardboard boxes, plastic bottles and cans that tend to pile up during the holidays.
There are two locations in the City to drop off recycling. The City of Branson’s full-service recycling center is located at 550 Compton Drive, across from the Branson Community Center. Items can be dropped off anytime using the 24/7 recycle trailer. Staff can assist you from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Saturday. An additional 24/7 recycle trailer is available in the Branson United Methodist Church parking lot, located at 1208 W 76 Country Blvd, next to the Veterans Museum.
Accepted: All cans, plastic bottles and jugs, glass food and beverage containers, cardboard, catalogs, greeting cards, envelopes, and clean paper.
Not Accepted: Styrofoam, plastic bags, plastic wrap/film, small pieces of plastic like straws, candy wrappers and cutlery.
