Residential Recycling Services

Stutzman Refuse Disposal has the only Single Stream Recycling Processing Plant in Central Kansas. Our facility is a key component in the residential recycling services we provide our cities by allowing us to collect and process recyclables on-site. Our patented glass recycling process is innovative and processes mixed glass, crushes it to a sand-like mixture and then ships the glass to Johns Manville in McPherson, KS, which recycles it into fiberglass insulation.

Participation in our residential recycling services is voluntary, affordable and easy to do. In some cities, recycling is included with the cost of trash disposal. In rural areas, there is a small fee for the cart and monthly collection.

Single Stream Recycling

Recycling is one of the best ways for you to have a positive impact on the world in which we live. Recycling is important to both the natural environment and us. It also ensures your children a brighter and better future.

We can process up to 50 tons per day of single stream residential and commercial recycling in a single shift. Currently, we operate 2 shifts a day. We offer tours of the facility to any groups that are interested.


Our innovative recycling processing center in South Hutchinson has received numerous State Awards of Excellence. This program has afforded Stutzman Refuse Disposal the Kansas Recyclers Association's Outstanding Environmental and Community Leadership Award for several years.

Our residential recycling services are voluntary and simple to participate in. In some cities, recycling is included with the cost of trash disposal. In rural areas, there is a small fee for the residential recycling cart and monthly collection by Stutzman Refuse Disposal.

Municipality recycling carts are serviced every other week, while most rural routes receive residential recycling services once a month.
