    Recycling

     

    As of January 1, 2019, only Portland Township is running the recycling program being offered at Municipal Supply at 1 Industrial Dr. Portland, east off Lyons Rd.  Danby Township has resigned from the joint program.  This means that only Portland Township residents can use this recycling program.  The dates that the containers are available to drop off items are the 4th Saturday and Sunday of each month.  The drop off times are between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm.

     

    *Note - on the flyer that went out in the mail to the Portland Township Residents last fall, the phone number of Recycle Ionia was printed in error.  The correct phone number is 616-432-9850.

    Click on flyer link below for information on what can or cannot be dropped off and for additional other recycling places.
