Benzie County is committed to environmental health through recycling opportunities,
household hazardous waste and electronic equipment collections, and educational programs.
The Recycling Program provides alternatives to residents and businesses to properly
dispose of solid waste and keep it out of the landfill whenever possible.
These are just samples of what can be found on the county's Recycling Web page:
A Recycling Site is located
at the DPW Maintenance Building on CR669 (Michigan Avenue) just north of Lincoln
(Lindy Road) in the Village of Thompsonville. It is well lit and equipped with
a security camera. Separate bins are provided for recyclables and glass only. Never
leave trash or construction material in a bin or on the ground. This is considered
illegal dumping and violators will be prosecuted.
There are six additional Recycling Sites throughout Benzie County:
- Almira Township Park on Ole White
- Benzonia at Save-A-Lot Shopping
Center on US 31
- Beulah at Village Municipal Parking
