2019 Michigan Green Communities Challenge Award

The Village was recently awarded a Bronze level certification as part of the 2019 Michigan Green Communities Challenge.


One of the contributing factors to the award was the continued high rate of recycling among our residents, which is consistently higher than the statewide average of 15%. In 2018, almost 42% of the material collected through curbside recycling and yard waste programs, and through household hazardous waste collection events was recycled or composted - avoiding the landfill.

The Village also received Bronze level certifications in 2016, 2017, and 2018.
