The Tuscola County Recycling Material Recovery Facility is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving our fragile ecosystem. The community of Tuscola County Michigan is improving the environment through active participation.

Residents are encouraged to bring their recyclables into the building and to help sort their items into the appropriate bins. Everything brought to Tuscola County Recycling is sorted out by hand and every single item has its own place and process. Assistance will be available for those in need.

A simple examination of what we use and dispose of everyday can reduce our dependence on landfills. Simple adjustments to our daily routines will eventually result in energy and money saved and a cleaner environment. We will establish a tradition for future generations to share. Recycling is a quick and simple method of reducing the amount of solid waste we discard. By recycling we can save natural resources, energy and reduce the amount of garbage being buried in landfills. It's easy to recycle. Provide yourself with separate containers for each item you wish to recycle. Instead of throwing everything in one container destined for the landfill, you place your refuse in individual containers for recycling.

Tuscola County Recycling was awarded a grant through the DEQ, to provide a new recycling trailer and employee what will travel to Millington, Mayville, and Cass City each week to provide another recycling option to the residents on this County. This program is funded by the grant through May 2016. It is our hope that this program will work to expand our collection abilities and that it will be successful in these communities.

You do not need to be a resident of that community to take advantage of the program.

Please see the Fliers for more information or give us a call at 989-672-1673.
