March Forth, Into Recycling

For the first time in decades, the administration is acknowledging the value of recycling to Michigan’s economy and environment. In a recent address to the Joint Appropriations Committee, Governor Snyder recommended that the legislature appropriate $1 million in general funds to a new recycling initiative.The recommendation is being hailed as an important first step by state leadership in an effort that MRC estimates could contribute an additional $500 million to Michigan economy when we reach 50% recycling. 

While the Governor has made the recommendation for recycling funding, the legislature will have the final say. Understand what this opportunity and potential policy changes could mean to your community. Learn how you can put your community ahead of the curve and be on the leading edge of the recycling wave in Michigan
