Press Release on Recycling Services
March 18th, 2020
The Cities of Alma and St. Louis have received communication from their recycling processor, Isabella County, that all recycling processing will be suspended until further notice. This announcement is linked to the COVID-19 precautions to limit the risk to county employees.
At this time, it has been determined the virus can spread through hard surfaces such as paper, plastics and other recyclable materials according to the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other health experts.
Based on this information our solid waste contractor, Republic Services, will be collecting the Recycling at the same time as the garbage until the Isabella County recycling processing facility comes back online.
We advise at this time for our residents to bag all recycling along with your garbage, to keep the material contained during collection. The Cities are working with the Republic Services and Isabella County to stay on top of this situation and will provide additional guidance as we receive it.
Isabella County, City of Alma, City of St. Louis & Republic Services our taking the coronavirus seriously. We are closely monitoring CDC, FEMA and local, state and federal guidance.
