A Greener Amory

The City of Amory is working toward a cleaner environment for its current and future citizens. We are currently working to refresh our recycling program. Once the program is in operation, you may participate in Amory’s Recycle Program by dropping off your qualified recyclable items at the designated box in the parking area between City Hall and the BNSF rail yard. Keep the following rules in mind so that our recycle program may continue to grow. For recycling other items not offered for disposal in Amory, please visit the link below. This PDF gives a list of where to take particular items in Tupelo.
