Chelsea update: Single stream recycling begins Monday in Chelsea
Chelsea will switch to singlestream recycling on Monday, when residents no longer will have to sort their recyclables, according to a report on Chelsea Update.
The program comes as the Western Washtenaw Recycling Authority makes the switch following a $3.5 million upgrade to its facility, according to the report.
The switch also affects residents of surrounding townships.
Ann Arbor made the switch to single stream in July 2010. In the first year of the switch, Ann Arbor's recycling rates increased by 24 percent, and trash tonnages were reduced by 10 percent.
