Recycling Do's and Don'ts

Please leave shredded paper in bags

Don't dump loose shredded paper in drop site doors

We do not accept PVC

Many of the instructions and suggestions provided are based on the fact that we hand sort most materials at  Chippewa County Recycling. That allows us to employ more persons with disabilities and other barriers to employment, and to be more flexible in the way we accept materials than more mechanized recycling services.

If you are not a Chippewa County resident, you will want to check with your local recycling program as their processing methods and requirements may be different.
