The only opportunity for residents of Helena to recycle plastic bottles is through our collection drives held the second full weekend, every other month. During these drives, we work with community partners to make it possible for you to recycle plastic that would otherwise be sent to a landfill. To find out more about recycling plastic, download our plastic recycling information sheet.
SAVE will also be collecting aluminum cans at the community plastics drive. Feel free to bring in your empty cans and help directly support the continued success of our events.
2013 Aluminum/Plastics Drive Dates:
We will be collecting plastics on July 12th-15th, September 13th-16th, and November 8th-11th.
Volunteer as a greeter!
As always, we need volunteers for collection drives to be a success! Volunteers greet community members and help answer questions or sort their plastics. It's easy to do and a great way to get involved in community recycling. Learn more about on our volunteer page, or call us at 406-449-6008. Click here for the plastics recycling volunteer guide. Our volunteers make these events possible, thank you for your interest!
