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.

Fremont Area Community Foundation and write ‘Newaygo County Recycle Services’ in the memo line.
