In 2011, the City was awarded a $25,000 grant from the State to assist with implementing a recycling program. A recycling fee of $1.00 was added to city utility bills in 2010 to help cover the purchase of recycling containers.
As the Recycling Program grows, curbside collections may become available in the future.
Establishment of a recycling program has been identified in public surveys as a priority among Sturgis residents. As the program grows, more collection bins will be added as well as collection sites for yard waste and other recyclables.
