As of January 1, 2015, recycling will get easier and more efficient for communities served by Mid Michigan Waste Authority.

Residents will now be able to recycle all of their plastic, metal, glass, paper, chipboard and cardboard in one container, no sorting needed.

Those items; packing peanuts, packaging foam, still need to be disposed of in the trash.
