Recycling Program

In order to give the residents of Sikeston an opportunity to drop off and dispose of their recycling goods, Sonny's Solid Waste Recycling Center at 451 Smith St. have their recyling bins open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  There is also a recycling bin located by Firestation #1 on the corner of North West Street and Compress Road.

In conjunction with the City's Compost Site, Sonny's Solid Waste willl furnish a 20-yard recycling box at our Compost Site located on Compress Road.  Recycling materials can be dropped off during normal Compost hours.  Click
