Convenience Center Information

The Henry County Refuse Department handles the County's household trash disposal. The Refuse Department manages seven Convenience Centers located throughout the County that are in place for County residents to dispose of their household trash and certain other items. The following links contain maps to each site.

Henry County's Convenience Centers operate Monday through Saturday, 7 am to 7 pm. All sites are closed on Sundays. All sites also closed on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year's Day. If a holiday such as Christmas or New Year's falls on a Sunday the Convenience Centers will be closed on either Saturday or Monday. Each of the sites are staffed by onsite personnel during business hours.

To use the sites you must have displayed on your car a County-issued sticker. These free stickers are distributed by the site monitors, who will verify your car’s registration and ensure that you are a Henry County resident.

Each of the seven sites will be gated and closed when not in operation. Please do not leave trash at the gate during those hours that the facilities are closed. Remember: If the gate is closed, do not dispose! Anyone caught dumping trash at any of the sites after business hours could be subject to criminal prosecution.

If you have questions about what you can bring to our Convenience Centers, view our Frequently Asked Questions at Convenience Center Sites (PDF).
