What recyclable materials does the City of Southaven collect, and where can I recycle them?

Please be aware that due to recent changes in recycling industry practices that affect our only local processing facility – we are required to request the following of our recycling customers:

  • Please place only Type 1 & 2 plastics in a curbside recycling cart.
  • Please place only Type 1 & 2 plastics in the recycle container at the Southaven Arena located at 7360 Highway 51 North.
  • Placing other plastics besides Type 1 & 2 will result in the loads being considered contaminated, will result in higher costs as penalties and will ultimately be rejected for recycling processing; the type of plastic can be seen on the bottom of most plastic containers
