PLEASE follow the guidelines posted on the recycling drop off bins. The signs have color pictures of exactly what is to be put into the bins. The signs also have color pictures of what is NOT to be put into the bin or left outside of the bins. If what you have has a Ø symbol in red over the top of the picture, this means do NOT leave the item at the bin. For most cases, the District has a program to help you dispose of the item properly. The property owners where the bins are located are kind enough to let the District place them there. Take RESPONSIBILITY for your trash and stop leaving it at the recycling bins. In the past, owners have requested that the bins be removed to the public leaving their trash items at the bins. Don't lose your favorite drop off recycling site! Keep it clean! #RecycleRight!!
Here is the new calendar for all of the events coming up during the second
quarter of 2021. To see calendars for the rest of the year, click the "District Schedules" tab.
The Miami County Recycling District is still requiring masks or facial coverings to enter the building. If you do not have a mask or facial covering, you will not be allowed into the building. Masks are available inside the District on the table as you come in. The District reserves the right to refuse service to anyone. No mask, no service.
Sadly, there is still illegal dumping happening at the Recycling Drop Off Sites. We have placed SIX signs on each roll off container that include color pictures of what can and what can not be left at the sites. Cardboard boxes are not being broken down either. When boxes are broken down, the containers don't fill up so fast! BREAK DOWN YOUR CARDBOARD BOXES. Take the styrofoam packaging out and put that in your regular trash. It is not recyclable in this area. If the container is full, please take your recyclables back home. Do NOT leave them outside the bins. DO NOT PUT ANYTHING ON TOP OF THE RECYCLING CONTAINERS! It makes the contractor's job three times as hard, and that slows them down because he is trying to clean up your huge mess. People who behave badly at the drop off sites will cause the sites to be closed and removed.
Not sure what you can leave at the County Drop Off sites? Confused by the illegal dumping of items at the recycling sites?
Here is some handy information showing what contaminates the recycling taken at the sites, and a checklist to see what you can and can't leave at the Miami County Recycling Drop Off sites.
If you have questions about what can and can not be left at the County Recycling Bins, please stop out at the District, or call the office at 765-472-7224. We will be happy to answer any of your questions.
