Grand Traverse County recycling bins made available to
The Grand Traverse County Resource Recovery Department
declared that the downtown Traverse City recycling program
is being welcomed by local shoppers, businesses and the
community in general.
In August, 2009, the Grand Traverse County Resource Recovery
department, along with the Downtown Development Authority
(DDA), initiated a pilot recycling program by placing
14 recycling containers within the downtown area. The
bins provide the opportunity to recycle paper and beverage
bottles made of plastic and glass, as well as metal containers.
Traverse City is one of very few communities within the
state that offers the community service opportunity.
Staff is monitoring the success of the recycling containers
for future expansion.
