Our "Additional Recycling Info" tab has a lot of year-round recycling opportunities.  Including household batteries, used motor oil, appliances and more!

100% of the material that we collect for recycling in Charlevoix County is shipped to various mills and end users for reuse in the Midwest.  Of this, 90% stays right here in Michigan.  Our recycled materials are supplied to mills and end users such as Georgia Pacific, Graphic Packaging, West Rock, White Pigeon, Clean Tech/Tabb, Advanced Drainage, Green Line Polymers, Gottlieb Industries, A & L Iron and Metal, Padnos Iron and Metal, Remm Recycling, BKL Recycling, and Metro Recycling.
