Hello! Thanks for stopping by. We are Open! At this time, we are accepting paper and cardboard. See below for details and times. Coming soon will be steel, aluminum and styrofoam recycling. No plastics are planned this year.
One way to help us stay open is to use Amazon Smile. You can choose Recycle Ionia Inc as the non-profit. We will receive a donation based on certain purchases. Thanks for helping us!
#1 Recycling Paper and other Paper-Based Materials 24x7! Please bring your paper recycling anytime and place them in the green PaperGator Bin (in front of the Soaring Above Teen Center building). Click HERE for the Paper Gator Accepted Materials list.
#2 Drive-Thru Cardboard and Boxboard Recycling. See SCHEDULE below. Bring your clean, broken-down cardboard (aka OCC) and boxboard (aka cracker, soda, cereal boxes) “drive thru” style on the schedule dates below. Shiny is ok, however the dark-brown Wax boxes that are used for produce or heavy floor tiles are not recyclable. The Wax coating can’t be removed to recycle the cardboard underneath.

CLOSED January & February for the Winter Season
The 2023 Schedule will be posted by mid-February so you can plan your March drop off
STEPS - DURING THE SCHEDULE DATE & TIMES ABOVE
A. Drive thru the SOUTH gate on Jefferson Street. Look for the blue & green recycling carts with an arrow to show you the way
B. Drop off the cardboard into the bins (behind the Teen Center building)
C. Drive thru the NORTH/WEST gate to Exit
Thanks for Recycling!
