Recycling (Where & What)

Where Can I Recycle? 

All residents of Grand Traverse County have the opportunity to recycle either at one of the Drop-off Sites located within the County or choosing to subscribe to curbside recycling services. 

Curbside Recycling

The most effective way to recycle. To be able to put your recyclables out at the curb, unsorted, is so much easier to do. If residents are not currently utilizing curbside recycling service, they must contact their hauler to subscribe.

Paper  Unwanted mail, phone books, cardboard, newspapers, office paper, magazines, boxboard including cereal boxes and shoe boxes, etc...

Plastic #1 thru # 7  Water bottles, milk jugs, shampoo bottles, detergent bottles, etc..
Glass  All colors. Wine bottles, jars, etc... No windows, mirrors, tv/monitors, light bulbs.
