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 changing recyclable commodities markets, it’s a good idea to contact the recycler to ensure your items will be accepted before loading them up and making the trip.

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

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.

You can also download this spreadsheet with the same information if you’d like the ability to sort by town, county or commodity.
