Tri M Sanitary

Garbage and Recycling. We are a full-service recycling center where residents of the City of Mellen, the Town of Morse, and the Town of Ashland can drop off their sorted recycling, trash in Tri-M trash bags, and larger (accepted) items for a fee (Mellen location only). Bags can be purchased at both Tri-M locations during open hours or at either the Midland Services gas station or at Northland Foods/Hardware Hank in Mellen. We also rent dumpsters.

NOTICE to TRI-M Sanitary Recycling Customers – tires must be removed from all metal brought into Tri-M for recycling.
Items such as bikes, lawn mowers, etc., will not be accepted unless the tires are removed. Tires can be disposed of for a variable fee; rate is determined by tire size.
