NEGAUNEE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WLUC) – Construction on a new single-stream recycling facility will begin in January, the Marquette County Solid Waste Management Authority says.
The Marquette County Solid Waste Management Authority says 1,350 took its survey about recycling (WLUC image).
The MCSWMA is looking at new survey results as it prepares for the new recycling opportunity. Brad Austin, the MCSWMA director of operations, says 1350 people took the survey.
The top three reasons people are excited about the new recycling program in Marquette County:
1. Better for the environment
2. More convenient
3. Recycling more items
A lack of interest or enthusiasm in recycling is due to the following:
1. Current dual stream recycling schedule confusing or inconvenient
2. More education needed about what can and cannot be recycled
3. Cost or lack of access to curbside recycling
4. Lack of faith that recycling is happening
