Drop-Off Center

Recycling Drop-Off Sites

WHAT:

Drop-off Recycling Sites accept your day-to-day recycling “streams”:

  • “Paper, Boxes and Bags” and
  • “Containers” (bottles, jugs, jars, foil, tubs, cups, cans, cartons).

WHERE:

You can drop off your day-to-day recyclables at any of the 13 Recycling Sites shown on the map below.

In addition, CURBSIDE RECYCLING SERVICE for Paper, Boxes and Bags and Containers is offered by Alanson, Harbor Springs, and Petoskey, Little Traverse Township, Bear Creek Township, and Resort Township. We operate these services and can answer your questions about them; the communities pay to provide curbside collection. If you have the service, thank your community leaders!
