Michigan Capital Expects to Double Recycling with New Program

The city of Lansing, Mich., expects to double its recycling with the launching of a new program featuring larger recycling carts.

Lansing is rolling out more than 30,000 carts, and recycling will be picked up curbside through automated collection every other week, the city said in a news release. There is no additional cost to residents.

“The carts make recycling more convenient for residents and at the same time create a safer and more efficient system for the city of Lansing,” said Chad Gamble, Lansing director of public service. “Truck operators will no longer have to empty bins by hand, making their jobs safer and reducing injuries. A more efficient collection also means lower emissions and less wear and tear on city streets.”
