Drop-off Recycling Open March 1

The recycling drop-off area at Perkins and Water Streets (close to Kroger) here is Rushville, IN has moved to Smiley Avenue (just beyond the animal shelter).  It will be available for drop-off recycling starting March 1.  Please wait until then as workers are still preparing the site.

Clean Green Rush and the Street Department for the City of Rushville are partnering to improve recycling.  The drop-off collections bins are the same ones that were at the old site but now at Smiley Avenue where the Tox-Away Center is and where the Street Department handles their heavy trash collection.  (Heavy trash (bulky items that doesn't fit a trash toter-- not garbage) is accepted for a fee from city residents only.

Things have changed to adapt to a new way of collecting. Since the site is monitored and fenced, hours of drop-off coincide with the City's hours, Tuesday through Saturday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.; closed Mondays.  While this may be an inconvenience to some, we feel this will help eliminate much of the materials and trash that is not recyclable and the most efficient use of resources.

Also recycling can be dropped-off just inside the gates at CGS Services, Inc. landfill just outside of Morristown, Indiana.  The City of Rushville provides another option for its residents with curbside recycling. To participate in program, call the Street Department (765-932-2575). You can leave a message and they will deliver to your door a sturdy toter with a green lid similar to your trash container. Curbside recycling is picked up every Friday.

If you have questions or concerns, call Carole Yeend at 765-932-2139 or 317-407-3221.

Rush County Government  

Welcome to the official website of Rush County government where you will find information on its offices, agencies, and officials.

Most government offices are situated in the Courthouse, an appropriately elegant 1896 monument to Rush County's heritage.

However, Rush County is more than historical buildings, farm country, and small-town living.  Some of its greatest assets are the friendly, hard-working, honest people who help make Rush County a safe, family-oriented community. To learn more about Rush County, click here.

Please wander through our virtual directory and don't hesitate to contact those listed throughout this site.  Better still, visit us in person.  Click here for map to Courthouse.
