East Lansing's recycling center on State Road is back open.

On Monday, Jan. 4, East Lansing’s drop-off recycling center at 1800 E State Rd. reopened. The announcement about the reopening came following an ELi reader question being relayed to the City by ELi reporting staff.

According to a press release from Department of Public Works, “All users of the site are asked to follow traffic flow signs and are required to wear a mask and maintain at least six feet of physical distance from others.”

The press release lists items accepted for recycling:

  • plastics #1-2 and #4-7 (but NO plastic bags of any type)
  • aluminum cans/foil
  • tin/steel cans
  • boxboard (like cereal boxes)
  • brown paper bags
  • corrugated cardboard
  • glass bottles/jars (clear, brown, and green)
  • mixed paper, magazines and catalogs (glossy), newspapers and inserts
  • phone books
  • polystyrene #6 (Styrofoam™)

All items should be empty and rinsed.

The site will be open 24/7, and if you have questions you can contact DPW by calling (517) 337-9459.
