Recycling is an important part of protecting the environment. If we do not recycle, we contribute to landfills and waste materials that could be reused for other purposes. Recycle Livingston is one organization that knows the value of recycling.
Recycle Livingston is a non-profit organization based in Howell, Michigan, that promotes recycling and waste reduction in Livingston County. The organization is volunteer based and open to the public.
Recycle Livingston’s social mission is to “promote recycling and waste reduction by operating an independent, non-profit site for collecting, sorting, consolidating and transporting recyclables.”
The products accepted for recycling are many in number. From newspapers and junk mail to telephone books and glass, there are special instructions for recycling a wide variety of items. The list of instructions can be found on the Recycle Livingston Web site.
There are no residency requirements for the community to drop off recyclables. However, there is a $3 gate fee for nonmembers.
Annual memberships are available to the public for $25 for a regular household and $20 for a senior household. In addition, free memberships are available for volunteers who are willing to put in 10 hours of service.
Recycle Livingston is open Wednesdays from 12:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
