In order to meet the recycling needs of all county residents, Wayne County developed and implemented a countywide system of drop-off sites, which are strategically located throughout the County. Currently there 14 municipal sites that are staffed by local volunteers, and are open on various Saturdays throughout the month. The County provides roll off containers and collection & processing services to these sites. The materials are processed at the County facility, where they are then shipped to market.
The following materials are accepted at the drop-off sites: clear, brown and green glass bottles, metal cans, aluminum cans, Number 1 and Number 2 plastic bottles, newspapers, magazines and junk mail and office paper. Materials are to be dropped off only during operating hours.
