WMSBF Offering Make-Up Bottle Bill Tour

Back by popular demand, West Michigan Sustainable Business Forum will host a tour of the Schupan Recycling Wyoming Facility on Tuesday, May 23 from 10 am to 11:30 am. WMSBF members and their guests are invited.

The State of Michigan recycles 96 percent of the carbonated beverages containers recycled under Michigan’s Bottle Bill law at just two facilities in Wixom and Wyoming.  
The 55,000-square foot facility processes 45,000 tons of material each year, including most Michigan deposit containers collected west of US-27, and miscellaneous other items, such as commodity material collected from events and full-product destruction.

The program will include a presentation addressing frequently asked questions about the Bottle Bill.  Free program with registration. Limited to 15 participants.

All attendees must wear closed-toe shoes suitable for walking in an industrial facility with stairs and an occasionally sticky floor. Glasses, ear protection and safety vests will be provided.
