Recycle Center


The City of Nixa Recycling Center is open to residents who live inside Nixa city limits and is not available for use by commercial businesses. Those that live outside the City of Nixa boundaries (but still have a Nixa telephone prefix of 724 or 725) may obtain a Recycle Center permit City Hall. The permit costs $36 a year and entitles the holder to limited use of the recycling facilities. Permit holders will not have access to the yard waste area.

The money collected from recycled aluminum cans dropped off at the Nixa Recycle Center is donated to the Nixa American Legion Post 434.
