Each site has large bins for household items: cardboard/paper; tin, glass (clear and colored) and plastic. PLEASE FLATTEN YOUR CARDBOARD before placing in the bins.

It is a violation of the Michigan Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act, MCL 324.892, to dump, deposit, place, throw, or leave litter at any site.
