Recycling Containers - Please no plastic or garbage bags

Catawba Island Township recycling containers are located at 4822 East Cemetery Road along the back of the parking lot. It is important to remember that plastic bags are not accepted. The collection facility is a continuous feed operation and plastic bags clog the machines. Some area retail stores have plastic bag recycling receptacles available. For questions concerning the recycling program please contact the OSS Solid Waste District at 419-334-7222.
