Our Recycling Services

The Maple Lake Township recycle pickup is a free service offered to our residents. We encourage all to recycle, as the Township gets partial reimbursement from the County for poundage collected, as well as protecting our environment. Recycling is picked up every other Wednesday by our contractor, Mumford Sanitation, P.O. Box 417, Howard Lake, MN, 55349.
