Recycling allows people to make a difference within the environment, which is why the City of Lansing places such an emphasis on it.
For single-family households, there is no need to sign-up for collection. Recycling services are funded by the annual "yard waste and recycling" fee of $110.00 that is assessed to each single-family property through the "Winter Property" taxes. $80.00 of the fee goes towards recycling costs and the remaining $30.00 is designated for yard waste, including seasonal Christmas tree collection. At the end of this year, the fee will slightly increase to $115.00, which will be reflected in winter taxes.
