Rough Roads Delay Recycling Pick-Ups in Emmet County

Last week’s storm and rough roads put some recycling in Emmet County on hold.

Their drop off recycling center in Harbor Springs has stayed open, but several curbside pick-up routes have been cancelled.

Emmet County Recycling says the bad weather has made it tough for their trucks to get around.

Three routes were cancelled last week and one was even cancelled Monday because of road conditions.

“There are just a lot of neighborhoods we can’t get into, or if we get in we maybe can’t get out again so we had to just call it off for the day, and unfortunately last Monday we had to suspend service part way through,” Kate Melby, explained.

Because of the delay in service, ECR says in the meantime people are allowed to put out extra bins if their recyclables start to pile-up too much.
