EL Extra Recycling Days
 
East Lansing residents are encouraged to take advantage of extra, free curbside recycling days on the following Mondays: Dec. 12, Dec. 19 and Jan. 9. These collection days are being offered in addition to residents’ normal curbside recycling days. Residents can fill their carts with clean, accepted items and place them at the curb for collection. All items need to be place inside the cart with lids closed.
 
“We really hope residents will take advantage of these extra recycling days during the holiday season to reduce waste,” said East Lansing Environmental Services Administrator Cathy DeShambo. “Items like cardboard, boxboard, paper, magazines, cartons, plastic containers, cans, glass and so much more can be recycled through our convenient curbside program.”

Residents are also reminded that Simple Recycling offers free curbside recycling of textiles, clothing, electronics and household goods on regular recycling days and will be offering the same, additional City-wide collection days on the dates listed above (Dec. 12, Dec. 19 and Jan. 9).

Simple Recycling bags can also be picked up at the East Lansing Department of Public Works, 1800 E. State Road, and East Lansing City Hall, 410 Abbot Road. Simple Recycling bags should not be placed inside or on recycling carts; they should be placed next to carts at the curb with some clearance from the cart.
