Recycling in Missaukee County started in the 1970s, its creation was piloted by the local Kiwanis Club members. Over the decades the facilities expanded from a few semis to the buildings and storage containers you see today. In addition to an anonymous donation for the construction of a building, a large contribution to its expansion were grants from USDA obtained by Missaukee Conservation District to run recycling for 10 years in the county in addition to multiple state and local grants. In 2020, a millage was passed to sustain the recycling center. In 2021 Missaukee County assumed management of the Recycling Center.
Missaukee Conservation District appreciates the role it had in expanding and enhancing recycling in Missaukee County. It's been a pleasure serving our community in this capacity.
