We make it easy for you to responsibly recycle your unwanted items and waste. Simply schedule a pickup and Bay Area Recycling will do the rest. We serve the northern Michigan counties of Grand Traverse, Antrim, Kalkaska, Leelanau, Benzie and Manistee.
Contact us and together we can make recycling easier.
Recycling Charge: BARC assesses a small fee for most items (for larger and less common items BARC may need to assess an additional fee). This figure covers the cost of processing each of your unwanted items to be saved from our landfills.
Pickup Charge: BARC assesses a $75 pickup charge for items collected within 25 miles of our Traverse City facility, and a small additional fee beyond 25 miles.
Pickup Date: We generally schedule 1-2 weeks out AFTER this form is completed, so please plan accordingly. Our routes typically run on Mondays- please advise if you have special pick-up needs and we will do our best to accommodate.
Pickup Time: Unfortunately, BARC cannot give exact pickup times. However, a member of our pickup team will work with you to schedule a pickup and will call/text you when the drivers are on the way. If possible, we highly encourage you to move your items outside so you will not need to be present at the time of pickup.
