The occasional Recycle Day events allow Genesee County residents to bring unwanted waste materials to this location during a designated timeslot. Recycle Day staff are available to assist attendees in navigating the site and unloading items from vehicles. Appliances and tires will not be collected at the Recycle Day event.
“It is encouraging to see so many residents who want to recycle their hard to dispose of items; every participant makes these events possible. All items that are collected at Recycle Day are properly disposed of, so they do not end up in the County’s landfills,” said Derek Bradshaw, Director of the Genesee County Metropolitan Planning Commission. During the July collection event, approximately 580 residents attended, and 82,494 pounds of waste was collected.
