State’s clean recycling campaign continues
EGLE offers tips for communities with suspended recycling operations

Know It Before You Throw It recycling initiative to contribute to the production of essential resources.

“Recycling remains an important issue for Michigan,” said Jack Schinderle, director of the Materials Management Division at EGLE. “The materials collected from drop-offs and curbside collection programs are used in manufacturing new products, such as toilet paper and shipping containers.”

If a community’s recycling program is temporarily suspended, residents are encouraged to:

  • Store recyclables, including beverage deposit containers
  • Rinse, empty and dry all containers
  • Store materials in a dry area, indoors if possible, in bins or boxes
  • Save plastic bags for reuse or recycling at a participating retailer
  • Remember to remove items from storage bags before recycling
  • Flatten boxes to save space

Recycling benefits from collective action throughout the state, Schinderle said.

“Front-line workers in the recycling industry keep the materials management system running,” Schinderle said. “We are able to work together toward a cleaner, stronger Michigan through those who are getting up and going out there every day to do work on behalf of all of us.”
