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 $30/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.”
