Michigan’s statewide recycling campaign has been named Recycling Campaign of the Year by Waste Dive, a leading industry news publisher. The state’s first-ever clean recycling initiative, Know It Before You Throw It, launched in June 2019. The campaign is part of the effort to double Michigan’s recycling rate to 30% by 2025 and ultimately reach 45% annually. Michigan’s current 15% recycling rate is the lowest in the Great Lakes region and ranks among the nation’s lowest.
Through the campaign, the Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy has awarded 26 grants to help local communities improve recycling infrastructure and support development of emerging and new marketplace opportunities for recyclable materials.
