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 currently has a satellite trailer for recycling collections.
