ALLEGAN, Mich. — The Allegan County Health Department announced Friday an annual recycling event was rescheduled.

The Electronics and Household Hazardous Waste collection event has been moved from May 2nd to October 24th to avoid risking any exposure to COVID-19 or violate any executive orders about gatherings.

"With the nature of this event, social distancing would be difficult to maintain." The ACHD announced. "The health and safety of our residents, vendors, volunteers, and public safety that participate in this event are the top priority. Residents participating in the Resource Recovery Program should continue to safely store materials until they can be properly recycled."
