The Chester County Solid Waste & Recycling Department is ahead of the curve when it comes to providing eco-friendly alternatives to disposing of waste. The solid waste department is dedicated to responsibility eliminating waste through waste reduction programs, litter prevention, and environmental education.

Since 2011, the Solid Waste Director, Danny Benard has received over a million dollars in grants to start a Recycling Hub in West Tennessee. The funds from the Tennessee Department of Environment Conservation’s Division of Solid Waste and Hazardous Management enabled the county to establish a pilot project in 2011 for recycling solid waste. Chester County is a Hub for surrounding counties and cities in Tennessee, which includes Chester, Hardin, Hardeman, and McNairy Counties. The goal of establishing the hub is to promote and increase recycling across Tennessee, engage municipal governments to partner with other local governments for recycling. Recycling in Chester County provides alternatives to residents and businesses to properly dispose of solid waste and keep it out of the landfill whenever possible to keep Chester County clean and litter free.
