In 1990, the City of West Plains implemented a curbside recycling program. The idea was to make recycling easy and convenient. This program is an ongoing effort to reduce household trash that is filling up our Missouri landfills, and the City of West Plains operates a recycling center located at 1851 Goodhard Drive. Hours are from 8-12 and 1-4. To sign up for Recycling, please call Sanitation at 417-255-2330.
