County Plans Recycling Park on John Price Road

Recycle(October 13, 2022) Mecklenburg County Solid Waste Services plans to build a full service recycling facility on John Price Road in Steele Creek within the next three years. The site is being developed to provide residents in the Steele Creek area access to a full service recycling facility. The County recognized that there was a gap in service for the fast growing Steele Creek area. A significant portion of Steele Creek is outside the Charlotte city limits and does not receive city curbside pickup services.

The site for the facility is between John Price Road and South Tryon Street across from Nevada Boulevard. Access to the facility will be from John Price Road only. See MAP.

This facility will accept recycling, household trash, household hazardous waste, bulky waste, construction waste, yard waste, and more from Mecklenburg County residents and businesses, including those living either within or outside Charlotte. They also will have mulch and compost for sale. They will be open Monday through Saturday.

Mecklenburg County Solid Waste Services will provide the same services at the John Price Recycling Park location that they do at their existing full service recycling centers. More information about what they accept at their full service recycling centers can be found at Mecklenburg County's Full Service Drop-Off Centers.

The County has submitted Rezoning Petition 2022-088 to change the rezoning for the property from I-1 to I-2(CD) to "allow construction of the John Price Recycling Park as permitted in the I-2 (General Industrial) zoning district." The Public Hearing before the Charlotte City Council is scheduled for October 17.
