Single-stream recycling in Chocolay

MARQUETTE — All Chocolay Township residents can now begin using the single-stream recycling program, according to an announcement from township officials. Residents can place cardboard, paper, plastic, and metal together in a hard walled container or recycle cart.

A separate curbside glass collection will begin Dec. 7. The first full week of each month will be dedicated for glass recycle collection only. You may place your glass in a hard walled container or recycle cart and it will be collected on your scheduled collection day. No other recyclables will be collected that week. If your glass is contaminated with any other material, it will be tagged and rejected for collection. The remainder of the month will be dedicated to the single stream collection only. If your single stream is contaminated with glass during these weeks, your single stream will be tagged and rejected for collection.

A glass collection schedule is available on the Chocolay Township website www.chocolaytownship.org.

Questions regarding this can be directed to Brad Johnson, public works superintendent at 249-1448 or bjohnson@chocolay.org.
