We are a non-profit recycling group, recycling as much as we can with and for folks in Ravalli County.
We are your friends and neighbors who believe that recycling must be a part of our lifestyle in Ravalli County. We believe that recycling is an important way for individuals and businesses to reduce the waste they generate. Ravalli County Recycling (RCR) believes that recycling conserves our natural resources and saves our landfill space.
Help your neighbors with spring cleaning by VOLUNTEERING at Ravalli County Recycling. RCR needs your help only 3 or 4 hours, once a month.
Call volunteer coordinator Janice Lee-(406) 360-9895. Expect to handle cardboard, magazines, mix of papers, newspapers, cans of aluminum and steel, and plastics #1 and #2. Volunteers are the heart and soul of RCR. They put in 4,959 hours last year as they assisted 13,400 customer visits, up from 10,600 visits in 2013.
We provide free recycling services for all of Ravalli County. Our recycling yard is open from 3pm - 6pm on Mondays and 9am-12pm on Saturdays at 759 US Hwy 93 N, Hamilton, across from Don's Home Center. You may drop off recyclable materials during these hours! We also accept large appliances, including refrigerators and air conditioners (for a fee of $35 to safely removing freon). If you prefer curbside pickup instead of drop off, that is available -- call (406) 375-5398.
RCR is up and running in Ravalli County. Every week, we work to divert waste away from
landfills, and instead provide a no-cost solution to those who can bring
recyclables to our dropoff site. Affordable curbside pickup service is
available for those who can't or don't want to bring it in.
Without Recycling, we would be throwing away materials that can be processed and sold for re-use. Landfills are filing up while they pollute groundwater and fill the air with methane gas. Recycling can save non-renewable resources and energy. The bottom line is that human generated waste can ruin our Valley and our planet.
