Idaho County Recycling

Idaho County Recycling has been in operation for five years now, and has active sites at Grangeville, Kooskia, Cottonwood and Riggins. Kooskia site is open twice per week, on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to noon, and again on Thursdays from 4-6 p.m. in spring and summer, and 3:30 to 5 p.m. in fall and winter. All other sites are open on Saturday only.

During the past year some of the volunteers have moved or have been called to other priorities, and in order to stay open on both Thursday and Saturdays, ICR are reaching out in the hope of having more volunteers join the core group. Contact Bonnie Schonefeld Kris Perry or Liz Clark
