A Fun Place to Volunteer!!
We're always recruiting happy people to volunteer and work at the center. You pick when you can come. If interested, stop by or text Phil Erlewine at 231-250-6459 (or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org).
We offer a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly pick-up service where for a reasonable fee, we'll come and pick up your recyclables. Why not join the many local groups and businesses for scheduled pick-up of recyclable materials?
In 2017 Recycle of Mecosta County saved 480 tons of paper products.
