Bellevue Recycling - Compost - Garbage
Bellevue Township, City of Olivet, Village of Bellevue, and Walton
Township, with the assistance of the Eaton County Resource
Recovery Department, partnered beginning in 2009 to provide our
residents an opportunity to recycle closer to home. Here is a link to Eaton County Recycling Sites.
cooperative effort has been established to provide our community
members with a requested "green" service that will benefit current
and future generations.
The recycling drop off site is located on the south side of
Butterfield Hwy just west of the City of Olivet. Butterfield Hwy
is the road that runs between Bellevue and Olivet and is also
known as M-78 between the Village of Bellevue and I-69.

cooperation in following all rules and direction given by site
staff. Site hours and the recyclable material the site accepts are

The Department of Public Works (DPW) maintains a Village compost
site located on S. Williams St that shares an entrance with Keehne
Environmental Center. It is for Village residents only. The site
accepts leaves, grass clippings, and brush. The piles are clearly
marked as to what belongs where so make sure you are dropping off
only acceptable items in the appropriate place. Community members
are welcome to take as much compost as they need. Availability is
on a first come first serve basis.
Spring Clean Up Event Flyer
“The Village of Bellevue and Bellevue Township work together to hold a Community Spring Clean-Up Day, scheduled on the first Saturday in May every other year on even years. As the event approaches information will be posted on the Village’s website and Facebook page, in Village newsletters, and local newspapers. The events hours are 8:00 a.m. until noon. It is held at the compost site.
This event is held to assist homeowners in cleaning up their properties after the winter months. It normally accepts several types of materials such as rubbish & junk, scrap metal, tires, and used automotive fluids. What is accepted may change from event to event based on community needs and the ability to find participants to accept collected material.”
Village Leaf Pick Up Program
The Village Leaf Pick up is a community wide program that takes
place in late fall when the leaves are falling and down. The pick
up is a service the Village offers. The program was put into place
when a no burning ordinance took effect. The ordinance combined
with the pick up program has made a substantial improvement in the
air quality within the Village in late fall.
Garbage collection is done by private solid waste haulers.
Arrangements are between the property owner and the hauler.
