2023 Clean-up Days:
Saturday, June 3
Saturday, August 26
You have voted for recycling in the township! We will be working with the Allegan County Recycling to get things set-up, however, we have been informed that this will take some time. Bids must be obtained, paperwork completed, forms and recycling cards printed, etc. before we can begin. From our understanding, actual recycling will not begin until early 2024. In the meantime, unfortunately, you will have to discard your recyclables with your normal trash.
One option we have, if you choose to do so, is bring your cardboard, paper, and cans to the marked dumpsters at Broken Arrow Recycling, located at 1100 Lincoln Road, just past the blinker at 26th Street, heading towards Otsego.
