Think spring! (And recycling!)

Posted on April 1, 2016 at 6:02 AM by Jessica VanderKolk

I remember hearing the motto, “reduce, reuse, recycle” as a student. As an adult, I now understand just how important that is; not only to recite, but to live. We in Battle Creek take recycling seriously and want to provide as many opportunities to recycle as possible.

Our city facilities have recycling containers that are put to good use and this month we roll out our new recycling program in partnership with Waste Management.

Each customer will receive a 96-gallon recycling container to hold your recyclables. With a lid and wheels, we hope it will be easier to get to the curb and keep your items dry and contained.

Each one of us needs to do our part in reducing the amount of solid waste that goes into our landfills. Recycling is one of the best ways to do this!

Make it a family event to see how much you can reduce your regular garbage by increasing your recycling efforts. Can you fill your new container? That is my challenge to each of you!

Happy Spring!
