Yes Ocala has a recycling center ! I was dismayed when the Sam's club and other locations removed their recycling bins. When my trash was spilling over from all the recyclables I figured it was time to find an alternative. This center is very easy, and convenient. The address isn't on my iphone or google map, but as you head west on highway 40 take a left on the paved road behind the Ocala "International" airport. The center is just ahead on the right. Note the photo attached showing hours, its closed Tuesdays and Thursdays. Open on weekends so that is convenient. The convenience of this place is that you just dump all of your recycle ready stuff into one large compactor machine. There are attendants on duty if you need help. Old refrigerators, toxic waste, can also be left here, there may be a fee for that. Good job Marion County ! This was written June 9 2013
These guys give 40 cents per pound of aluminum cans, which is the best i have found so far. They are also quite helpful on the phone.
