If you find that you are collecting too much recycling for your current container, great job!  If your primary container is paid for through your city or township, a second container may be available through your hauler for a small annual fee.  Please contact Resource Recovery at 269-686-4559 for more information.


The new “Know it Before You Throw It” campaign stresses the importance of rinsing and drying all plastics before recycling, as contaminated samples can ruin an entire batch of recycling.

The ads featuring the "Raccoon Recycling Squad" will be launched on television, on billboards and on their website statewide.
At a rate of 15%, Michigan currently has the lowest recycling rate in the Great Lakes Region, despite the 10-cent bottle deposit.
