Starting Aug. 6, 2018, Calhoun County Residents can access the C&C Landfill recycling center for free. This program is limited to residential recycling, and all participants must have a program card to recycle for free.
- This program is offered exclusively to Calhoun County residents.
- The C&C Landfill recycling center is located at 14800 P Drive N in Marshall, Mich.
- The recycling center is open 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 7 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.
Program cards: Residents can pick up a program card from their local municipality or township.
At the landfill: After obtaining a program card, participants should stop at the landfill’s scale house to verify their residency each visit. Residents may bring a load of recycling equivalent to what can be held in a 96-gallon cart per visit. All materials must be empty, clean and dry.
Accepted materials: Residents may bring the following items to the landfill recycling center.
- Paper: magazines, catalogs, junk mail, office paper, phone books and newspaper
- Cardboard: cardboard, paper bags and paperboard
- Plastic: plastic jugs/bottles (#1-#2) and household plastic (#3-#7)
- Metal: aluminum cans and steel, and tin cans
- Glass: clear and colored glass
Benefits: This partnership between Calhoun County and the C&C Landfill increases time residents can recycle household items and reduces participants’ cost to do so. The single-stream recycling does not require sorting that is required currently at the County’s other recycling centers that are open once a month.
Program dates: This program begins Aug. 6 and runs through Dec. 31, 2018.
More information: The recycling center accepts the same items as the Republic Services “All-In-One-Recycling” curbside program and requires no sorting.
