Resource Recovery - Recycling


Eaton County Department of Resource RecoveryThe Eaton County Department of Resource Recovery (ECDRR) is the designated implementing agency responsible for the development and administration of the County Waste Management Plan under Public Act 641. In 1993, a Solid Waste Ordinance was enacted in Eaton County with the purpose of protecting and promoting public health, safety and welfare of residents. Through the Solid Waste Ordinance, solid waste collection, transportation, delivery and disposal can be regulated. Residents and businesses are provided incentives to recycle in order to reduce the volume of solid waste disposed, and the environment is preserved and improved.

ECDRR is a resource to Eaton County residents. Tips on recycling, reuse and waste reduction are readily available during office hours, Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 517-543-3686.

Recycling Centers

ECDRR provides information from local recycling centers but each center operates under the municipality in which it resides. For answers to questions on recycling in your neighborhood, call your local city or village hall.
