Recycling Drop Center Update (April 2020)

The recycling bins and service at the Harker Heights Recycling Drop Center (1761 FM 2410) are provided through a memorandum of understanding between Fort Hood and the City of Harker Heights. 

The bins and service are provided at no charge to the City by Fort Hood.  Fort Hood provides service to the bins as their trucks and staff allow.  Fort Hood has been a tremendous partner with the City and has provided great service for years.  As with all endeavors, the recycling service may vary at times due to equipment, facility or staffing limitations.  We ask that all those that use the recycling bins at the City’s drop site to be patient during times when these limitations may occur. 

We look forward to continuing to serve the recycling needs of our citizens through our partnership with Fort Hood. 

Only the following recyclable materials will be accepted at the drop off center:
Cardboard (please break down all boxes)
Scrap Metal
Tires With Rims and Without Rims
Used Cooking Oil

The drop off center will not accept the following items:
Motor Oil

The drop site’s hours of operation starting are as follows:
Tuesday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Thursday 8 a.m to 5 p.m.
Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Saturday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.


Please note that the drop off center will continue to accept brush and bulky solid-waste items from citizens with a current water bill and a drivers license. Please contact 953-5600 with any questions or concerns about the recycling service.
