For Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day & Tire Collection Day, see Board of Public Works section.
Since June, 2017, the Newaygo County Department of Public Works has overseen the recycling sites across the county. Household recycling is a way to reuse items so they do not end up in a landfill. In order to sell the recycled materials, they must be clean and only the items listed must be put in the provided containers.
These are provided as a service to county residents and to promote and protect the environment by reusing items. No trash, household items or anything hazardous may be dropped off. Locations will be closed if unrecyclable items are dropped off. Unless otherwise noted, these sites will continue to be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
You too can support recycling services in our community.
Please make checks payable to:
Fremont Area Community Foundation and write ‘Newaygo County Recycle Services’ in the memo line. Checks can be mailed to: Fremont Area Community Foundation, 4424 W. 48th Street, Fremont, Michigan 49412.
Donations are also accepted in our donations boxes, located at each recycle site, and online through the Community Foundation’s website: facommunityfoundation.org. Click on the “Give Today” button located at the top of the page. Please include ‘Newaygo County Recycle Services’ when asked for your gift’s purpose.
