POWELL TOWNSHIP RESIDENTS,
Let’s Get Recycling!
What is single-stream recycling?
Our current recycling system processes cardboard/paper recycling and metal and plastic containers on alternating weeks. This is called dual-stream recycling. Single-stream or mixed recycling allows residents to put paper, flattened cardboard, plastic, and metal containers in one container for weekly collection.
How does this work?
Marquette County Solid Waste Management Authority (MCSWMA) operates a material recovery facility or MRF. This facility uses technology and people to sort these materials into clean recycling. MCSWMA is making investments to upgrade the MRF to handle both paper items and containers at the same time.
This investment also makes it easier to recycle
What will we be able to recycle?
Not only is this a way to save the environment and save space in the landfill, Powell Township Residents save tax money in Landfill Fees!
Marquette County Solid Waste Management Authority has asked that Battery Recycling Program be put in place after December 2020 issues that occurred from batteries being thrown in trash.
Bins and cartons are available at the Powell Township Transfer Station for batteries to be properly stored and then to be recycled. Powell Township Residents are strongly encouraged to keep batteries listed in flyer to the side for this type of disposal. The Powell Township Transfer Station Attendant can help with any questions.
