The state wants your ideas: How can we change our trash-tossing ways?

Jul 19, 2016

Do you have any idea how much money we are throwing away with that all that garbage that's going into our landfills?

Tomorrow, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality will hold a public meeting in Lansing to figure out how to rethink the way we deal with garbage and trash.

At the meeting, members of the public will get a chance to weigh in on the first major revision of our trash disposal and recycling laws since the 1990s.

Recycle Ann Arbor's zero-waste advocate Bryan Weinert joined us today to talk about the current state of waste management in Michigan and how it might be improved.
