Where to Recycle in Montana

Please see below for information on where you can recycle certain commodities in Montana. Clicking on the name of the recycler will take you to their website if they have one.

Because of the constant changes to the world recycling commodities markets, we recommend you contact the recycler to ensure your items will be accepted before loading them up and making the trip.  Please let us know if you have any changes to the list so that we can update and keep current.

Plastic numbers 1 and 2 are the most common, but some recyclers take other numbers too – please call to check.

Please contact the Montana Department of Environmental Quality for information on the proper disposal of junk vehicles.

Baling Twine can be recycled in Yellowstone County! Call 406.591.8608 or email yvas.twine.recycle@gmail.com for dates and times. In Laurel, it can be dropped off across from the container site. Call 406.591.8606.

Republic Services offers recycling at several Montana locations.

Albertson’s accepts plastic bags at the following locations: Bozeman, Glasgow, Glendive, Great Falls, Kalispell, Livingston, Miles City and Missoula.

Idaho Tire Recycle is currently our closest tire recycler.
