Ravalli County Recycling Ramping Up

There’s a lot you can do to help the recycling efforts in the valley.

The group, Ravalli County Recycling, has expanded their operating hours to twice a week. The drop-off site on Old Corvallis Road, across from the Ravalli County Fairgrounds, is open as usual from 3 to 6 p.m. Mondays. And recently, they began Saturday operations from 9 a.m. to 12 noon.

The drive-through operation, next to Habitat for Humanity’s Re-Sale Center, is where KLYQ drops off piles of newspapers every month. We love it. But that’s not all you can recycle. Here’s the list.

  • Plastic – clear plastic bottles, water bottles, milk bottles, translucent bottles, clear plastic clamshells, plastic cups, opaque milk bottles, detergent bottles and other #1 plastics.
  • Metal – aluminum beverage cans, pet food cans and clean aluminum foil, steel (tin) food cans and coffee cans, scrap metal including aluminum, brass, copper, iron steel and electric wire motors.
  • Paper products including office mix scrap paper, flattened cardboard, telephone books, magazines, newspapers and catalogs.
  • Other material – lead-acid rechargeable batteries, woven feed sacks, toner cartridges and cell phones.
  • What is NOT accepted? Glass, hazardous material, petroleum products or their containers.

    Remember to rinse all containers and dispose of any lids or caps.

    And, if you’d like to volunteer, they could use you! Call (406) 375-5398. With enough volunteers and a few cash donations, the recycling operation can keep growing in the valley.
