Deerfield Townships and Isabella County Recycling Center have joined in a curbside recycling partnership to bring recycling to your door. Starting in March 2007 the County Recycling Center will provide curbside recycling to residents in your townships.

Townships participating in this curbside recycling program can be certain of many savings, including; reducing household trash, personal time spent recycling, and gasoline paid for at the pump.

Isabella County’s and Deerfield Township’s commitment to recycling is unique and focused on streamlining residential recycling in an effort to provide a quality curbside recycling that is cost-effective.

Curbside recycling is one of the best ways to protect the environment, especially in times of shrinking personal budgets of both time and money.
