MANISTEE COUNTY PA69 RECYCLING PROGRAM
WHERE TO RECYCLE:
The recycling site for Springdale Township residents is at the Springdale Township Hall (corner of Healy Lake and Glovers Lake Roads) or at any of the PA69 County Recycling sites located in Copemish, Kaleva, Onekama, Arcadia or Brown Townships.
HOW TO RECYCLE:
- Keep your recyclables loose when put into the green recycling containers at any of the six drop-off locations.
- Plastic bags should never be placed in the green recycling containers, even if they contain accepted recyclables. Recycle unwanted plastic bags at a local retail store or dispose of them with your trash.
WHAT CAN BE RECYCLED:
- 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
- #’s 1 – 7 plastic. Check the bottom for the number in a triangle. No triangle with a number on the bottom? It is not recyclable in our bins.
- If items other than these are placed in the county bins, it is contamination and will be landfilled.
- Do not place Styrofoam in the recycling bins.
- No household garbage!

SPECIAL COLLECTION OF CARDBOARD:
Area students earn money for school programs when cardboard is recycled in the school trailers. Residents may use the trailer at the Betsie Valley School for cardboard. Through a generous donation by Packaging Corporation of America (PCA) these trailers are also located at schools throughout Manistee County.
THANK YOU FOR RECYCLING!
