Litter Landing is a county owned and operated Material Recovery Facility (MRF) that operates on the donations of recyclable materials offered by those that participate in the recycling program. Collecting recyclable materials is essential for saving space in our sanitary landfill as well as protecting our natural resources. However, not everything can be recycled and there are limits on what can be processed.  For other recycling collection facilities in Hancock County please see the Recycling Directory for more information.

Donations only accepted during staff hours:
Monday - Friday from 7am to 7 pm 
Saturday from 8 am to 6 pm   and   Sunday 9 am to 5 pm.

Closed on Holidays
