LRS Approach to Recycling in Michigan and Northwestern Indiana

LRS remains committed to protecting Michigan’s wealth of natural beauty and resources.

That means reducing consumption, diverting material away from landfills, and consistently developing new solutions for real sustainability, including:

Through innovation and dedication to these best practices, we’re proud to be expanding the boundaries of what’s possible.

  • Transitioning from a yellow bag program to a cart program to reduce recycling contamination and improve diversion metrics.
  • Improving our single-stream recycling operation to process cleaner recyclable materials and more of them.
  • Investing in community education and promoting the responsible production, consumption, and recovery of materials.
  • Pursuing grant funding to supplement program rollouts and maintenance costs.
