The move toward being green has traveled to Sands Township.
The central Marquette County community has just started a new recycling program.
Items to be recycled are collected at the Township Complex just south of the Crossroads on m–553.
For now, the recycling dumpster is sitting along the edge of the parking lot.
This unit, and at least one more, will be housed behind a newly built fence.
Township residents can drop off recycling products anytime the Sands Township Complex is open.
A unit will soon be set up at the transfer station, which is open from 10 to 5 on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month.
