Recycling Is Back Beginning This Week

October 11, 2021

Recycling is back for beginning this week for Escambia County residents.

The Emerald Coast Utilities Authority’s recycling center is now in operation, and they are once again collecting recyclables from residential customers.

The MRF was damaged in a fire on July 15, requiring significant cleanup and repairs. During the downtime, ECUA collected residential recycling materials, but most everything was sent to the landfill.

Recycling is available to all ECUA customers in Escambia County and City of Pensacola Sanitation customers. The Town of Century does not offer recycling services.

The MRF has also reopened to the cities, counties, and commercial haulers who use the facility to process their recyclables. ​
