About Us

Our Story

Starting operations in mid-2018, 406 Recycling provides Montana businesses, organizations, government agencies, and households with secure, convenient, and local electronics recycling. In the summer of 2020, 406 Recycling partnered with YES Compost initially providing compost hauling for the Helena Food Share and soon expanded to include households and businesses with 406 Compost! Residential customers of 406 Compost will receive a quarterly dividend of $.015/pound for material collected with an option to accept that amount as payment to service or have 406 Compost donate double the amount to charity.


Our History

Our team includes the staff of 406 Recycling, which proudly employees persons with disabilities, and is committed to being as green as possible!
