PLEASE NO GREASY PIZZA BOXES

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.

NOTICE
We are no longer able to accept #3-#7 plastics for recycling due to conditions beyond our control in the recycled plastics commodity markets.

Why?

China's not buying it anymore.
