Chippewa County Recycling Center  operated by Northern Transitions, Inc.  since 1989.


We cannot recycle greasy pizza boxes. If the top is clean please rip it off and throw away the greasy bottom. If all is clean that's fine. Also, please remove all pizza before recycling.
Thank you for your cooperation.     

Northern Transitions Inc.'s Chippewa County Recycling program faces the same problems with reduced commodity prices and increased handling costs as the programs across the country discussed in this Detroit Free Press article. Down the road, some changes are inevitable, but you can help us right now by following the rules, requests and suggestions provided at our drop sites, and on our website and Facebook page.  Read the article.

PLEASE, no bottle caps!

When you are done rinsing your bottles please throw the caps away. They are different plastic than the bottle and must be removed. If you are leaving the bottle cap on because the bottle has something in it, say spoiled milk, or used chewing tobacco (we've seen this more than once) – definitely throw it all away.

NO STYROFOAM or "kitchenware"!!
A recent newspaper article erroneously suggested that Chippewa County Recycling was now accepting Styrofoam and "kitchenware". We have NEVER accepted Styrofoam, and still don't! "Kitchenware" seems to suggest plastic knives, forks, spoons and cooking utensils which we DO NOT accept. Only clean BOTTLES and CONTAINERS are accepted. Please refer to the recent #3–7 notice for details.

We hope that those of you who took advantage of Saturday's Household Hazardous Waste/Electronics Collection Event found the process user friendly and helpful. Missed this event? Do not despair, next collection is scheduled for June 23ed, 2018. We thank you for your cooperation.
