About Recycling Day

The City of Fishers hosts bi-annual free City Recycling Days in the spring and fall at Billericay Park, where residents can recycle electronics and household electronic or metal items (such as mowers, treadmills, bikes, grills, batteries, metals, etc.) and household hazardous wastes (such as automotive fluids, acids, paints, fertilizers, pesticides, PCB ballasts).  

Paper recycling and off-site confidential document shredding are also available. Paper recycling is available on site for all paper types, but the shredding of confidential documents is completed off-site after the paper vendor, Share’s Inc., hauls the paper to their offsite facility. Share’s is a certified confidential document shredding company.

The City’s vendors do NOT accept wood, mattresses, plastic, general trash or other random household items.  All items must be metal/electronic, paper/cardboard, or chemical in nature.  Items brought that are not accepted will be the responsibility of the resident to take back home with them for disposal.
