About Recycle Spot

RecycleSpot.org is Kansas City Metro Area’s one-stop spot for recycling, reuse and waste reduction information.

RecycleSpot wants to make sure all Kansas City area residents have the knowledge, tools and motivation to recycle more and recycle better. We provide recycling education, guidelines and community resources for the greater Kansas City area. Our search feature connects you to hundreds of area services and providers and gives you information on what’s available in your community.

Our history

RecycleSpot first launched in 2006 as a simple tool that matched hard-to-recycle items with community resources. The goal was simple: divert waste from landfills and educate the public about recycling. 

Since then, we've helped thousands of Kansas City area residents find places to recycle, donate or sell used items throughout the region. In addition to our popular materials search, RecycleSpot offers educational materials, tips and public engagement events to help everyone recycle smarter. 

Who we are

RecycleSpot is an initiative of the MARC Solid Waste Management District (SWMD) and the Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) with grant funding from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.

The MARC SWMD serves as a regional solid waste planning agency for local governments in Cass, Clay, Jackson, Platte and Ray counties in Missouri, and works cooperatively with Johnson, Leavenworth, Miami and Wyandotte counties on the Kansas side of the Kansas City region.
