Adapted June Hard 2 Recycle

Adapted June Hard 2 Recycle

Asheville GreenWorks is happy to provide an adapted June Hard 2 Recycle event to the community. In order to keep our staff, volunteers, and community safe, we ask that you please follow CDCNorth Carolina, and Buncombe County government guidelines when choosing to attend the event. We also ask that you wear a face covering, and maintain a 6 foot distance between yourself and others. If you are in the high-risk category, please stay home and limit your exposure to others. Remember, there are many other ways to recycle your items, throughout the year. 

We will be accepting ONLY the following items on June 27:
Scrap metal
Electronics (including phones, computers, cords, etc)
Tvs ($10 fee: card or check made out to Biltmore Iron and Metal Company)
Styrofoam (no fee)

Please note that volunteers cannot unload vehicles at this event and are instructed to follow safety protocol. Participants will be expected to unload their own items, with staff on site to supervise and assist only as needed.

Please contact [email protected] or 828-254-1776 with any recycling questions.

COVID-19: Hard 2 Recycle Updates

We’ve decided to postpone the April Hard 2 RecycleWe know that by following the guidelines put in place by our local leadership, we will come out stronger and healthier, and that’s our main goal right now. This central event, which would have been held at the First Baptist Church of Asheville, will be rescheduled for the summer, on a to-be-determined date.


Now for the good news!

You may already know that there are a number of ways to recycle your items throughout the year, not just at our events. The good news is that you can still recycle most of your items before our next event, and we’ve put together a list of resources for you.

But here are some things to consider:

  • These businesses may be changing their hours or procedures so give them a call first to make sure that you can still drop off items
  • Remember that you should still be practicing safe and smart social distancing, stay home if you’re feeling sick, and remember to wash your hands.
  • These businesses do not have the same capacity as our Hard 2 Recycle events – please be respectful and considerate to not overwhelm them with large quantities.
  • Hard 2 Recycle WILL be back – you can always hold on to items until then.

Have you seen the City of Asheville’s Waste Wizard yet? It’s a search tool to help you find a place to recycle those items that don’t belong in your blue bin.

We appreciate your understanding and continued support as our organization navigates these changing times. We will see you soon!
