For this year’s Waste & Recycling Workers Week, keep our workers safe by recycling right!

Proper recycling practices — as encouraged by the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) — are not only good for the environment and economy. They’re also important for the safety of people who work at any materials recovery facility (MRF) throughout the state where items placed in recycling bins are sorted. Check out this EGLE Classroom - Recycling Safety video to see some of the dangerous items that workers find in the recycling plant and learn how you can help keep these workers safe! Check out Governor Whitmer’s proclamation and visit Michigan.gov/EGLERecycling for more information on how to recycle right.
