Join us for a behind-the-scenes tour of the Recycling Center! You’ll learn about:
- What we do with the materials you recycle everyday
- The dozens of additional materials collected for recycling in Emmet County ONLY at the Pleasantview Road Drop-off Center (Are you recycling your cooking oil yet?)
- What your recyclables are made into and where
- Anything else you want to ask about: waste reduction, reuse, recycling, composting, and yes, okay, landfills.
IMPORTANT: READ THESE

Curbside recycling routes will run on their usual schedules all week.
The Pleasantview Road Drop-off Center will be open during regular hours: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Veterans Day.
Come to the hospital and drop off your sharps and needles for free. This handy “drive-through” event is held in the circle drive on highway 31. And you can get a free needle disposal kit!
Sharps need to be in an approved hard impermeable plastic container.
Sharps are NOT accepted by Emmet County Recycling at any location.
