Clarence Township will continue to have its recycling roll-off on the third weekend of the month. Residents need to dump loose recyclables into the container and break down boxes.
Republic Services will continue recycling services at the C&C Landfill recycling center at this time. The center is available Monday through Friday 7 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.. It is important that you do not have contamination in your recycling. In order to follow social distancing, material recovery facilities, that sort recycling, have needed to reduce their staff numbers. This means our residents need to follow the recycling guidelines to help us continue to offer recycling. Do not leave any boxes or bags on the ground. We need to work together to keep this service available and protect landfill and recycling staff.
- Please do not recycle: plastic bags, shrink wrap, or polystyrene. Make sure your recycling doesn't contain facial tissue, napkins, or paper toweling. Here is a link to a flyer to help you decide what you should and shouldn't recycle
The Marshall and Albion Recycling Centers are closed. Currently, the Marshall Recycling Center is expected to reopen Tuesday, April 14.
- Any recycling left at the Marshall Center will be landfilled
Recyclerama on April 4 has been cancelled.
A HHW collection is now scheduled for 10 a.m.-Noon, Oct. 24, at the Toeller Building, Battle Creek
Other recycling options:
GFL also operates a drop-off recycling facility in Battle Creek located at 15160 6 ½ Mile Rd. It accepts paper, cardboard, books, and tin cans. This center is open 24/7.
Bottle deposit containers:
Currently, some stores are not accepting bottle returns. You have already paid your deposit on those items, so if you would like to get your deposit returned, you will need to hold onto those items until the stores start accepting bottle returns again. Stores will continue collecting bottle deposits while bottle returns are not available. If you do have recycling available at this time, those containers can be recycled; however you will loose your deposit.
