The best way to prevent blowing litter is to bag your trash and make sure the bag is securely tied shut. While your recycling cannot be placed in plastic bags, you can more securely contain your recyclables by using a 45-gallon or smaller can instead of a recycling bin.View Flyer
Residents who are unaware of safe needle disposal methods may be tossing loose needles in their trash cans or recycling bins, posing a serious risk of injury and infection to collection workers, neighbors, children, and pets. MMWA’s Be Smart with Sharps campaign aims to prevent accidental needle stick injuries to sanitation workers, and anyone else who comes into contact with curbside refuse materials.View Flyer
MMWA is asking residents to focus on recycling cardboard, plastics #1 & #2, steel and aluminum cans, and paper. Reducing contamination in the curbside bin helps reduce costs and improves the quality of the processed recycling. Don’t be a wishful recycler – know before you throw!
Don’t Just Recycle, Recycle Right!
Rethink Your Recycling
Mid Michigan Waste Authority is pleased to launch Rethink Your Recycling, a new education campaign aimed at answering some of the most common, “Can I recycle this?” questions posed by our residents. Each month, we will focus on a different item, encouraging residents to stop and think about whether it belongs in their recycling bins.
