Michigan Materials Management Facilities web map

In addition to ensuring that waste disposal practices are protective of the public and environment, we promote a systematic approach to using/reusing resources productively and sustainably throughout their life cycles, from the point of resource extraction through material recycling or final disposal. Materials management includes managing recyclables, organics, tires, wood, concrete, and other materials traditionally considered trash and landfilled.

A thriving materials management system in Michigan is created through a network of successful local programs, effective education, innovative market development, public/private partnerships, and more. EGLE strives to make grant funding available annually to support projects that will contribute to Michigan's environment through enhanced materials management.

Education Resources

Education is an essential ingredient for a sustainable and thriving recycling system. We hope to provide meaningful information and resources to support education efforts across Michigan. Together, we can make more informed decisions about how to manage our discards, preserving our landfill space, improving our economy, and preserving natural resources.
