Atoka Takes Recycling to the Curb - Offers Only Curbside Recycling Collection in Tipton County
Posted on Saturday January 13, 2018
The Town of Atoka is proud to partner with WastePro in offering the only curbside recycling collection in Tipton County - offering our residents a convenient, cost-effective way to help reduce, reuse and repurpose materials that would otherwise be headed to a landfill. The service runs every other week and costs $4 a month.
The Town of Atoka now offers curbside recycling collection as a part of our standard solid waste service - meaning that customers can easily and conveniently reduce the amount of material that heads to the landfill and help put those items back into productive use.  The service, running every other week, picks up various paper, metal and plastic products in a single-stream of material - meaning there's no need to separate the items, just put your recyclable materials in the designated bin and place it curbside. That's it - fast, easy and green !  

The cost of curbside recycling is $4 per month per can.  

Products accepted
Paper : Newspaper, magazines, office paper, junk mail, cardboard, paper bags, etc.
Metal Cans : Aluminum cans, steel or tin cans, empty aerosol cans, etc.
Plastic : Plastic grades 1-7 (in a recycling logo on the package)

Collection occurs every other week - with the Red Route being collected on Thursdays and the Blue Route being collected on Fridays.  Please note that the recycling routes are different than the solid waste routes - so be sure to double-check your collection day by checking out the recycling map.  

You can also help reduce the amount of household waste you produce by using the recycling collection bins that are provided at the Tipton County Landfill at 8279 Old Highway 51 S in Brighton. Plastics, cardboard and newspaper goods are all accepted for recycling.  A regular dump pass is not required to recycle at the landfill.

For more information or to sign up for recycling service, call Atoka Town Hall at (901) 837-5300.  Customers can also request new recycling service online at or through the AtokaConnect mobile app.
