Recycling Center

The Leavenworth County Transfer Station is happy to announce that we are combining efforts with Leavenworth Paper and Office Supply and the Lions Club, to collect plastic bags for recycling!  We have had a cannister for bags, in our Recycling Center, for a long time, but no outlet for actually recycling them – they would always have to be thrown in the trash.  Now, when you bring up your plastic bags and put them in the cannister, they will be collected by our partners, LV Paper and Office Supply and the Lions Club and given to NexTrex for recycling!  NexTrex is the recycling branch of Trex, which turns the bags into their Trex products, such as decking and benches. 
You can bring your bags to the Leavenworth County Transfer Station Recycling Center,
located at 24967  136TH St, Lansing, KS 
Tuesday thru Friday, 8:00am – 3:45pm, Saturday 8:00am – 1:45pm.
The Leavenworth Paper and Office Supply is also a drop-off for plastic bags. 
They are located at 521 S 2nd St, Leavenworth, KS – Monday thru Friday, 8:00am – 5:00pm. 

We offer recycling to our county residents, same open hours as the Transfer Station.
The center is located at the Transfer Station, next to the scale house. 

We offer recycling of cardboard (NO STYROFOAM), paper, soft plastics, glass (of all colors), aluminum cans and tin cans at the center. We also have metal and ewaste recycling located past the scale house.
