Stevens County

The Stevens County website lists specific guidelines as to what materials are or are not recyclable in your area; please consult this list (as well as any materials you may have received from your county or recycling servicer) as you collect your recyclables. But remember, you can always recycle MORE than just what's collected! Reusable goods can be given to thrift stores or churches, food waste can be composted, some materials can be sent directly to remanufacturers... For tips on recycling MORE than what's normally collected, check out our mega list of what can be recycled and how.


Recycling Guidelines

Use your blue recycling bin for curbside collection. Separate recyclables by category into paper grocery bags or softener salt bags.

Newsprint only; no glossy papers, catalogs, magazines or phone books. Bundle newspapers with twine or put in paper grocery bag.

-- Aluminum cans: Crush if possible to save space.
-- Tin/steel cans: Rinse and remove paper labels.

Clear, brown and green glass bottles and jars are accepted. Must be clean and unbroken. Remove all caps and lids. DO NOT INCLUDE: light bulbs, mirrors, window glass or ceramics.

Only plastic bottles with necks, marked with the recycling symbol #1 or #2 are accepted. Wide-mouth plastic containers are not accepted if the mouth is wider than the base of the container (e.g. ice cream pails, whipped cream containers, margarine tubs, etc.). All containers caps must be removed and discarded.

Cardboard is not collected curbside or at rural recycling drop-off trailers, but it can be brought to the county recycling facility (south of Morris) for recycling.

Additionally, the following items are accepted at the county recycling facility:
-- Used oil & filters
-- Fluorescent lightbulbs (free for residential households; businesses pay a small fee for recycling/disposal)
