Genesee County announces the next countywide Recycle Day collection event for hard-to-recycle items such as household hazardous waste and electronics will be held at Carman-Ainsworth Middle School on Tuesday, June 21, from 2 to 6 p.m.

 The Recycle Day event allows Genesee County residents to bring unwanted waste materials to this location during the hours listed above. Recycle Day staff will be available to assist attendees in navigating the site and unloading items from vehicles. Event organizers are requesting that attendees enter Carman-Ainsworth Middle School from West Maple Avenue, and they appreciate your patience if there is a large turnout. Appliances and tires will not be collected at the Recycle Day event.

 “All of the items collected at Recycle Days are considered hazardous to the environment and should not be sent to a landfill as they can cause ground and water pollution. The overwhelming support from residents who want to recycle their hard to dispose of items properly make these events possible,” said Derek Bradshaw, director of the Genesee County Metropolitan Planning Commission.

 During the May collection event, approximately 1,250 residents attended, and 192,588 pounds of waste was collected.

 For more information about the event, please contact the Genesee County Recycle Hotline at (810) 762-7744, email Recycle@geneseecountymi.gov, or visit www.gcmpc.org/recycle-day/. Additional Recycle Day event dates are listed on the website.
