Recycling Update:  


Glass is now collected with all Materials

The Leelanau County Solid Waste Council announces that ‘Glass’ is now being collected in the same large green containers with the cardboard, paper, plastics, tin and metal.  This is for ALL Leelanau County recycling sites. Glass will no longer be collected separately.

Please remember the use of the recycling containers is limited to households in Leelanau County.    Households outside of Leelanau County, and ALL businesses, need to contact their local waste haulers for options on recycling.   

Also, residents are not to open or enter the recycling bins.  

Please keep all recycling sites clean and attractive for the community.   Deposit ONLY clean paper, cardboard, plastics, tin, metal and glass in the containers and  help keep the grounds clean and free of any material.

Report violations to 231-256-9812.
