Available to Businesses In:



The cost for weekly collection is just:

  • $185 per year per 96-gallon rolling cart (Just $15 per month!)
    plus an annual cart fee of $50 year/business (not per cart). This cart fee helps cover our costs to repair and maintain our cart assets.
  • $75 per year per 18-gallon tote (That's $6.25 per month!)
  • The totes and/or rolling carts are provided by Emmet County Recycling at no additional cost.

Lots of Cardboard? Large Cardboard?

Does your business generate

  • more than cart of cardboard per week or
  • cardboard over 24" in any dimension (measured flattened)?

If so, talk to your waste hauler about providing a designated cardboard recycling dumpster. All waste haulers providing service in Emmet County are required to offer this service under the County Waste and Recycling Ordinance. The Ordinance also requires that haulers charge less for cardboard dumpsters than waste dumpsters, and rightly so: Emmet County Recycling accepts the cardboard at no charge while transferring compacted garbage costs $32/cubic yard. For more information call Emmet County Recycling (231) 348-0640.

It’s easy! But don’t just take our word for it…

“At the Petoskey KOA Campground and Hearthside Grove Motorcoach Resort we host over 1,000 people per night during the summer season. We cannot imagine doing this without Emmet County Curbside Recycling. Meeting our customers’ expectations in every way is central to being an award-winning resort and our campers simply expect us to offer recycling. The service is smart business, easy to manage, better for the environment and is great for our brand image.”
Craig and Kirk Rose, former owners, Petoskey KOA Campground, Hearthside Grove Motorcoach Resort

“…with curbside recycling, we just put it all in the bin and have it at the curb each week–and for such a nominal charge! We love it!”
