Marshall County Recycle Depot

Have you visited the recycle depot? Check out their website on what, how, and where to recycle.

Please note: the Marshall County Recycle Depot is a recycling depot not a waste facility. The trash collected at their site is temporary during this campaign and intended to be for litter found in public places. Please use the designated dumpster only. If possible, please bag up beverage containers such as water bottles, pop bottles, and aluminum cans separately.


One of the scariest things about plastic litter is that it will never go away--it just gets increasingly smaller. The chemicals that make up plastic can enter soil and groundwater, then eventually be taken up by livestock or the plants we eat. We are all walking around with plastic and its related chemicals in our bodies. 

Amazing job Marshall County with the cleanup effort in 2021. 
When: April 16 - 30, 2021

Where: Anywhere in Marshall County

How: Grab trash bags from home and head to the nearest litter pile. Only bagged trash may be brought to the Marshall County Solid Waste Management District, 1900 Walter Glaub Drive in Plymouth during regular business hours.
