Recycling is an important step in making Indianapolis more sustainable as it diverts waste from the landfill. In 2007, the EPA found that an individual produces 4.62 pounds of waste per day and almost a ton of trash a year. Roughly 60% of household materials are accepted in Indianapolis' recycling programs.
The City of Indianapolis offers a wide range of options for recycling and properly disposing of waste, from curbside recycling to drop off recycling to proper management of household hazardous waste. The City also wants to help the residents and businesses of Indianapolis manage natural resources in the best possible way through education out its programs as well as opportunities with other organizations and businesses.
