Rural Recycling Program

Kootenai County Solid Waste is now offering single stream recycling at some of our rural sites. In 2012 the rural single stream recycling program removed 375.5 tons of material from the Solid Waste handling system. Currently the Athol, Twin Lakes, Garwood, Mica, Kootenai School and Canyon Schools Rural sites offer recycling. The Athol, Twin Lakes and Garwood sites are open 7 days a week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Mica, Kootenai School and Canyon School Rural sites are unmanned and accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. All Kootenai County Solid Waste facilities are closed on the following holidays: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day.

The recycling bins at the Hayden Meadows, Hayden Kindercenter and Dalton schools are being removed June 30 due to the availability of curbside recycling, affordability and competition from commercial recyclers.
