What you need to know:
Recycling services are not offered to residents and businesses in most of the Western UP, including Houghton and Keweenaw counties. Research indicates that most people recycle when given the opportunity. Curbside recycling has been implemented with great success in the cities of Houghton and Hancock. We need to continue to improve and prevent our landfill's limited space being taken up by things that can be recycled.
I support diverting waste from the landfill through recycling, composting, and implementing processes that add value to the county's waste stream. I urge officials in Houghton County to investigate and support these goals too. I support an increase in recycling opportunities in our region, and urge the city, village, township, and county officials of the Western UP to work with the county commissioners to create recycling opportunities for the county’s residents and visitors.
