Single-stream recycling starts today in Marquette

MARQUETTE — Starting today, all Marquette city residents can begin using the single-stream recycling program, according to an announcement from the city of Marquette. Residents can place cardboard, paper, plastic and metal together loose in a hard-walled container or recycling cart.

A separate curbside glass recycling collection will begin the week of Dec. 7-11, officials said in the announcement. The first full week of each month will be dedicated to glass collection only. Residents are asked to place glass in a hard-walled container next to their garbage and it will be collected on their scheduled pickup day.

No other recyclables will be collected that week.

The remainder of the month will be dedicated to the single-stream recycle collection only. A glass collection schedule is available on the city of Marquette website at www.marquettemi.gov. Garbage collection schedule and times remain the same, officials said.
