You care about your friends, family and community.
You care about nature and the great outdoors.
You care about Michigan.
And, yes, you care about your wallet.
We do, too.
So together, we do the simple, everyday thing that addresses all of these: recycling.
More and more, we also reduce waste, replace disposable items with reusables, and compost.
Thank you for recycling with us and joining us on the journey to a circular economy.

(They serve our customers, operate the waste transfer station and drive the recycling trucks.)
(They sort your recyclables, bale and store them, and then load them on to semis. The recyclables then go to factories where they are used to make new, everyday products.)
