Recycling is provided for Springdale Township residents through participation in the County recycling program. A drop-off location is located at the Springdale Township Hall (corner of Glovers Lake and Healy Lake Roads). The site is open 24 hours/day/7days/week for your convenience.
Beginning January 1, 2011 the Village of Kaleva and Maple Grove Township joined the County Recycling program. A drop off location is located in the Village of Kaleva. Springdale residents are welcome to recycle at the Kaleva location in addition to the other County locations.
Items recyclable at 24/7 drop off locations:
- Clean glass bottles and jars
- Steel and tin cans; Aluminum foil and cans; empty aerosol cans
- Co-mingled cardboard and paper. Please use PCA trailers whenever possible
- Plastic grocery and retail bags marked with the #2 or #4 symbol
- #'s 1 - 7 plastic. Check the bottom. The number is most often found on the bottom of a container. It will be in a triangle. If there is not a triangle with a number on the bottom it is not recyclable in our bins.
If items other the above are placed in the County bins, it is contamination. Contaminated loads will be landfilled. Please do not place Styrofoam in the recycling bins.
Through a generous donation by Packaging Corporation of America (PCA), students earn money for school programs when cardboard is recycled in the school trailers. Trailers are located at schools throughout Manistee County. They are located at the Betsie Valley School and Onekama Township Hall recycling sites. Please help fund student programming by recycling cardboard in the trailers.
