Roane County Government
The Roane County Solid Waste Department has operated as a Recycling Center since 1998, about four years after the facility went into post-closure. The main facility accepts household garbage, household clean-out, and small household jobs, small construction job material such as shingles, sheetrock, vinyl siding, tile, and other bulky items.
Hours of Operation:
Facility Hours: Monday – Saturday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
Office Hours: Monday- Friday 8:00 am to 4:00 pm
All loads requiring payment must be unloaded and paid out before 4:30 pm.
The Recycling Center is closed on all legal holidays.
Please note: Roane County does not accept glass bottles and jars for recycling. Please place glass in with regular household trash.
When you purchase new tires, you pay the dealers a disposal fee. You leave your old tires with the dealer. If you are responsible for disposal of the tires, you may bring the tires to the Recycling Center. You are responsible for “stacking” tires inside a tractor trailer. Employees do not unload or stack tires for you, so you may need to bring someone to help you.
Tire dealers Must have the State Tire Manifest paperwork and Tire and Tax Number from the State of Tennessee. This number is different from your business Tax Identification Number. You must have this information each time you bring tires. Call before bringing tires to ensure we have room in the tractor trailer.
The Roane County Convenience Centers are open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, & Saturday.
7:30am to 5:30pm **MUST BE UNLOADED BY 5:25″
