Recycling Drop-Off Stations
Residents can bring recyclable materials to a drop-off station for free!
Residents can bring recyclable materials to a drop-off station for free, or they can participate in recycling by hiring a waste hauler to provide a curbside container for recycling. To get curbside service, call your waste hauler (see below for additional contact information). If you live in the City of Grand Rapids, curbside is provided.
Follow the directions on the containers and do not include items that are not listed. Leaving anything outside the containers is considered illegal dumping. If you have questions about what is recyclable, or need to find out where to recycle something that is not listed, email us or check the household waste guide.
