The Material Recovery Facility provides the citizens of High Point with a material recovery facility that properly processes, separates, packages and ships an estimated 9,000 tons annually of co-mingled recyclables. The facility also provides cardboard recovery for the bi-annual Furniture Markets. We are currently receiving co-mingled recyclables from a portion of Guilford County and Jamestown.
Properly process all recyclables brought into the facility, find new markets for more recyclable materials and maintain the facility in accordance with City of High Point and OSHA standards.
The Material Recovery Facility serves the public by providing a means that helps protect the environment by recycling and saving landfill space. We also provide buy-back of aluminum cans and serve as a drop-off center for all other recyclable items accepted by the City of High Point.
We provide educational presentations and tours of the facility to the citizens of High Point through the City’s Environmental Programs Coordinator, Rebecca Coplin. To request a tour or presentation please call 336-883-3520.
