COMMUNITY RECYCLING UPDATE
As you may be aware, the global changes in the recycling market have negatively affected the entire country. All communities have been notified of a substantial increase in recycling costs, as China, who consumes a majority of the commodities globally, is no longer accepting recycling form the United States and other countries. 

Area recycling facilities have dramatically raised their rates, as much as four times what they were charging previously.Due to the sudden increase in costs, communities are actively looking for alternate, more cost-effective, short and long term solutions for recycling.

As we explore a variety of options for our residents, we ask that you continue to recycle, for now nothing has change in your service or cost. In an effort to make sure no recycling loads are rejected please be diligent in what you place in the recycling cart. Anything not on the acceptable list must never be placed in the cart. This causes contamination of the load and it will be rejected and sent to the landfill .

The communities of Western Wayne County are working together as a region on both short-term and long-term solutions. In order to keep the process transparent, we will share information as it becomes available. 

Remember, reduce, reuse and recycle.
