Changes start Monday, July 8.
The Fremont site for recycling, developed as a prototype for future recycling efforts has been a huge success since opening the gates this past February. With regulated hours the volunteer staffed location provides a seamless process for accessing the site. They also help to identify whether materials brought in are appropriate leading to a significant reduction in contamination from improper disposals along with providing some education for novice recyclers.
With the operation of the facility still rather new options continue to be explored as a way to increase efficiency, Beginning on Monday, July 8, the site will be adjusting their hours of operation to 9am-12pm Monday, Wednesday and Saturday.
3R will be handling the coordination of volunteers for the site.
“We are enthusiastic about the future of recycling in Newaygo County,” said 3R Executive Director Nick Looman. “As local awareness of our State and National recycling challenges increases, great people are stepping forward offering their time, energy, and ideas to a worthy cause.
“This won't work without a community effort and we’re excited to be playing a role in growing this program with our County Leaders.”
