Eaton County residents are welcome to utilize any of the six recycling centers that the Department of Resource Recovery works with in the county. However, all of these centers are different in many aspects, everything from the accepted materials to the hours of operation. So please be sure understand these differences before showing up with materials to recycle.
The closest alternative option is the Charlotte Area Recycling Authority. Like most sites, the Charlotte Area Recycling Authority has a very different operation than the Potterville Recycling Center.
