The new recycling center is officially open!!
Located at 208 S. Lincoln Ave, the site is super easy to use. Follow the instructions on the side of the dumpsters and the machine will do all the work. Yes, you will see buttons, but you do not need to push them. The machine will sense when it is full and needs to be compacted and do all the work for us.
One machine is CARDBOARD ONLY and the second machine is PLASTIC. The sign identifies every item that can be recycled.
Let's all work together to use this site as it is intended and make our planet a cleaner place to live.
If you have any questions please call Village Hall at (989) 352-6322
