Easy to Recycle During Holidays

Does your trash overflow during Christmas? Americans typically generate 25% more waste during the holidays, and most of that is recyclable. While bows, ribbons and shiny or foil papers are NOT recyclable, other holiday waste can easily be recycled.

Branson’s full service recycle center is located at 550 Compton Drive, across from the Branson Community Center. Recycling is available 24/7 there and your items can be dropped off anytime. Staff can assist you from 7-2, Monday through Saturday. A convenient 24/7 recycle trailer is also available in the Branson United Methodist Church parking lot on Highway 76 for recycling anytime.

Bring any of these items to either location for processing:

  • Cardboard boxes (please flatten), packaging, wrapping/tissue paper (no foil or shiny).
  • Catalogues, greeting cards, envelopes and any other kind of clean paper.
  • Tin cans, glass jars and bottles, aluminum cans. Labels are okay and do not need to be removed.
  • All kinds of plastic. No Styrofoam. You keep the lids, please.

For more information about recycling call 337-8559, or go to or Branson Environment and Recycle on Facebook.
