Recycling in Montcalm County

Montcalm County residents have access to six recycling drop-off sites located throughout Montcalm County. Residents are encouraged to properly dispose of recyclable items that might otherwise be landfilled or burned. Acceptable recyclables collected at the drop-off sites are delivered to the Kent County Recycling and Education Center in Grand Rapids. The recyclables are then sorted, baled, and shipped to end-users, saving landfill space and natural resources, and helping to preserve our environment.

For recycling questions contact, the Montcalm Conservation District at 989-831-4212 x108 or the Montcalm Conservation District website.
