Recycling

 

Recycling has resumed.  Be sure to follow all the rules for successful recycling.

  • Recycling drop off will be self-serve.  Volunteers, when available, will only be observing from a distance.

  • We urge anyone who is sick, has been sick or is exhibiting any signs of illness to stay home and wait for another recycling event.

  • When the bins are full, DO NOT LEAVE ANYTHING ON THE GROUND.  Granger employees WILL NOT p[ick up anything that is outside the bins.

As usual, the bins will be open from 8 am-5 pm on Saturday and from 8 am until they are full on Sunday.  Please note that this is only open to Portland Township residents.  To help make this recycling effort more successful, please read the information on this website link:  Recycling Raccoons

 

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.

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