Make A Commitment to Recycle- We All Win

Each year Mid Michigan Waste Authority celebrates America Recycles Day with a number of activities. Many of the 35 member communities recognize the importance of recycling and purchasing recycled content products by passing resolutions and proclamations. Residents make a promise to recycle by making a commitment on a pledge card. Everyone who makes a commitment is entered to win great prizes from Mid Michigan Waste Authority.
