Recycling is a weekly service provided to single family and duplex homes. Beginning January 1, 2015, recycling became more efficient for all of the communities served by the Mid Michigan Waste Authority (MMWA). Through single-stream recycling, residents are able to place all of their plastic (1, 2, 4, 5, 6 & 7), glass, steel & aluminum cans, paper, and cardboard into one container - no sorting needed. Residents are asked to focus on reducing contamination by ensuring that only these items are placed in their curbside set out. Other items such as plastic bags, foam products and tanglers, like hangers and cords, should not be placed in your curbside recycling container.
Residents may continue to use their current recycling bin or purchase a larger container, up to 45-gallons in size. The larger containers must be marked with a "R" or have a "Recyclables Only" sticker placed on the side of it. "Recyclable Only" stickers are free of charge at the Township Offices. "Recyclable Only" stickers may also be found at the MMWA (989-781-9555).
Items accepted for curbside recycling are listed on the recycling process page.
