Recycling program in jeopardy after August

MAYFIELD TWP. — With only a couple days’ notice, National Recycling of Marlette has pulled out of the Lapeer County Farm Bureausponsored recycling program, leaving the program’s future uncertain.

Thanks to Rick Rhein, said recycling program coordinator Jim Davis, the collection scheduled for this Saturday as well as those in August will still take place. After that, it will be a matter of finding a permanent solution.

Find out more about the recycling program in Sunday’s County Press.
