Meet Recycle Livingston, the only non-profit recycling center serving the residents of Livingston County Since 1989. And we are still committed to reducing the flow of solid waste to local landfills today, even expanding our program to include many hard to recycle items such as household batteries, Styrofoam, computers, latex paint, among other items. Since the inception we have relied on volunteer support so we can continue to provide our services at a minimal cost and be available to everyone. Many of the items we accept for recycling are difficult and expensive to recycle.
At times, when the markets for materials change we also have to change. So please go to Recycle Info tab for more information on what we can recycle and what we cannot. It is important to keep our materials sorted and acceptable to our vendors. And while we wish we could recycle everything, we are committed to recycling 100% the items you bring in. And should items that are not recyclable get mixed in, not only will our vendors not accept the materials, we run the risk of having our hard work end up in the landfill. We pledge to continue to seek out new markets and we will continue to strive to recycle as much as we can with your assistance.
"You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make" ~~Jane Goodall

This guide has many answers to hard-to-recycle questions. This guide was created by the Livingston County Solid Waste Department and as such, Recycle Livingston cannot guarantee how accurate this information is. Please call Recycle Livingston for any hard to recycle questions.
Guess what we are now recycling....Latex paint and water soluble stains. There is a $2 charge for each container of paint which includes Quart, Gallon, and 5 Gallon sized containers. There is no charge for empty paint containers, both metal and plastic. However the paint has to be completely used up and the container must be dry. However all containers containing any amount of paint will be recycled and the fee will apply. Please do not mix kitty litter in with the paint.
