Montcalm County residents have access to five, recycle 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, natural resources, and helping to preserve our environment.

Vehicle Donation Program (Recycle for vehicles in bad shape)
Our mission believes that every child, no matter his or her health, deserves a chance to have a happy and fulfilling childhood. By donating your vehicle, we are able to raise funds to support Make-A-Wish chapters in locations throughout the country, helping grant wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions. A wish is an opportunity for a child to focus on something other than their medical routines, and be a kid again.
