Hard working volunteers!
Phase 2 of our plan is currently in place.
Our vision for Phase 3 includes RCR's current collections and operations at a larger site plus a baling machine and loading dock that will allow us to produce baled products that can be marketed directly to mills and brokers around the country.
Transportation costs and storage problems prohibit the marketing of recyclables that are not baled to mill specifications and shipped in full semi-truck loads.
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 feels that recycling conserves our natural resources and saves our landfill space.
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!
RCR is now 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.
By making better choices, together we can work towards a better end result.
