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 water bills in 2010 to help cover the purchase of recycling containers.
As the Recycling Program grows, curb side collections will be made available.
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.
