Revitalize Curbside Recycling and Composting Programs
Ann Arbor was a first mover in municipal recycling. Currently, over 50% of Ann Arbor waste is diverted from landfills for recycling or composting. We need to do better.
Furthermore, new pension accounting requirements, the swift transition away from the prior vendor, and the condition of the MRF have resulted in a reduction of our Solid Waste Fund. This is an area that will require ongoing attention and improvement. We are currently collaborating with neighboring jurisdictions to determine whether recycling would be best effected by a regional solution.
