The Lansing area's largest recycling event, Recycle-Rama 2019 is scheduled for Saturday, April 13th from 9 AM - 2PM. This year's event will once again be held at the Ingham County Health Department on Cedar Street. The one-day recycling event is open to everyone and almost everything is free to drop off. If you've got books, clothing, scrap metal, appliances, medications and more to get rid of, this is your big chance. (Please note that there is a $20 fee for TV's and monitors. Also, no batteries or hazardous material will be accepted during the event.)
