    Did You Know?

    The Shawnee County Solid Waste department hauls more than 150 tons of refuse and 40 tons of recyclables per day! In addition to this, our Household Hazardous Waste Facility handles over 100 tons of material per year, keeping it out of our local landfill.

    The solid waste fleet consists of 19 refuse and 11 recycling trucks to handle both residential and commercial solid waste.

    On Saturday, September 26, 2015, Shawnee County, in cooperation with the City of Topeka held its first ever electronic waste (e-waste) collection event. We collected a total of 90,000 pounds, (45 tons) of e-waste. This amount filled 2 semi trailers and 2 box trucks. All of this material will be recycled, keeping it out of the local landfill.
