Michigan Distilled: Talking Trash

We don’t want to talk trash, but Michigan’s recycling rate is abysmal -- 15% -- and one of the country’s worst. Why? The state has failed to make recycling a priority -- until now.

A new bill has been introduced at the State Capitol. If passed, it’d overhaul the way we handle garbage, emphasizing recycling and composting—and would generate new green jobs.

Join MEC and our resident recycling expert, Sean Hammond, to learn more about the bill, how it’ll affect Kalamazoo, and what you can do to help it pass.
