Sunfield Recycling Center   *Note new policy below:


Beginning March 2, 2019, the recycling center will be open Wednesday's from 3-6 and Saturday's 9-12.

In addition to this change in hours, the Sunfield Township Board is aware that many individuals from surrounding communities are using the recycling facility. The center does not produce the revenue needed for normal operation. To be fair to the Township taxpayers, effective March 2, ONLY Sunfield Township residents will be allowed to use the Recycling Center with no fee. Please be prepared to prove Township residency with your driver's license/property address. Non-residents will be charged a $10 fee per visit payable in cash (and MUST have exact change).


*Note - on the flyer that went out in the mail to the Danby Residents last fall, the phone number of Recycle Ionia was printed in error.  The correct phone number is 616-432-9850.


Granger's Recycling Facility in Lansing is open 24 hours, 7 days a week.  Click on the link in the list above for more details.
