    • $50 per year per 18-gallon tote–
      just 96¢ a week!
    • $150 per year per 96-gallon cart–
      just $12.50 per month!

Cardboard note: if your business generates more than household quantities of cardboard (your cardboard would fill more than a 96-gallon cart each week) talk to your waste hauler about providing a designated cardboard recycling dumpster. Emmet County Recycling is only able to collect smaller amounts of cardboard curbside. For more information on provisions for cardboard collection in the Emmet County Solid Waste Ordinance, call Emmet County Recycling (231) 348-0640.


It’s easy!  But don’t just take our word for it:

“At the Petoskey KOA Campground and Hearthside Grove Motorcoach Resort we host over 1,000 people per night during the summer season.  We cannot imagine doing this without Emmet County Curbside Recycling.  Meeting our customers’ expectations in every way is central to being an award-winning resort and our campers simply expect us to offer recycling.  The service is smart business, easy to manage, better for the environment and is great for our brand image.” – Craig and Kirk Rose, Petoskey KOA Campground, Hearthside Grove Motorcoach Resort
