City creates new recycling service
Curbside program includes apartment buildings, multi-family housing

by Nytasha Walters
The city of Ann Arbor will be
piloting new territory as one of the
only communities in the country
providing curbside recycling to all
its residents beginning April 1.
All multi-family housing unit
managers and landlords are re-
quired to file a Recycling Applica-
tion with the city by March; fail-
ure to do so could result in the cer-
tificate of occupancy being revoked.
Nancy Stone, Education Coordi-
nator for the Ann Arbor Solid
Waste Department, urged students
living in large apartment buildings
currently without curbcarts to
check if their landlord had filed an
application for a recycling
curbcart.
After the city finishes dis-
tributing curbcarts in April, curb-
side recycling will be available to
all Ann Arbor residents, including
those living in apartment buildings
and multifamily units.
The combination of the City's
recycling program and the Univer-
sity's residence hall program will
provide all University students
with the opportunity to recycle.
The city is under pressure to
find alternative means of waste
disposal, such as recycling, to deal
with their mounting trash prob-
lems because the Ann Arbor land-
fill has almost reached capacity.

Despite the efforts
of Ann Arbor's Solid

of the city
Waste De-

partment and Recycle Ann Arbor
to promote recycling, Stone esti-
mated that only half of all poten-
tially recyclable material is being
pulled by residents from the waste
stream.
Stone explained that the city is
increasing their distribution of ed-
ucational material to raise resi-
dents' knowledge about recycling
opportunities. She said the city
hopes to avoid implementing
penalties for failing to recycle, but
if educational efforts fail the city
will have to look at stronger
methods to raise participation.
"Providing curbside recycling
for multi-unit apartments is a
whole different ball game," said
Tom McMurtrie, of the city's
solid waste department. McMur-
trie said that because they are tran-
sient population, student participa-
tion in recycling is not as high as
that of homeowners.
University students said that
although they felt recycling was
important, they did not necessarily
actively participate.
LSA Junior Tammy Giluk
said,"When we lived in South Quad
we recycled because the boxes were
right there. But we don't take the
initiative ourselves - there's really
is no justification for (not

recycling)."
Giluk said part of the reason she
doesn't recycle is because it doesn't
directly affect her.
"We .all know that it is impor-
tant, but the problem doesn't seem
immediate - it doesn't seem close
to us. You can tell someone it is,
but until it affects someone's life
directly it's hard to make the
effort."
But many University students
said they have made an effort to re-
cycle. LSA senior Jennifer Grey
said she realized how important re-
cycling was after visiting a land-
fill for an environmental course.
"It was incredible the amount
of unnecessary waste I saw at the
landfill and the amount of land
wasted by landfilling," Grey said.
Grey said she recycles every-
thing possible, even though she has
to take it to a drop-off station since
she doesn't have curbside recycling
yet. She said she believes that peo-
ple's failure to recycle was due to a
lack of awareness of the problems
recycling can help solve.
Student and apartment manager
Dave Nelson said that almost ev-
eryone in his building recycles. "I
see people going out to place recy-
clables on the curb all the time."
Nelson added that he couldn't
see why someone wouldn't recycle.
"With the convenience of having

containers right in your room it's
so easy to recycle, you might as
well do it," he said.
LSA senior Tom Wagner agreed
that recycling was important, ex-
plaining that recycling is the first
step in solving the waste disposal
crisis.
But Wagner also said many peo-
ple still don't recycle because they
think of their part in the big pic-
ture as insignificant.
Recent studies in recycling par-
ticipation at the School of Natural
Resources have found that al-
though an individual may believe
recycling is important, barriers
may prevent the individual from
actually recycling, Prof. Raymond
DeYoung recently discussed in his
course Conservation Behavior.
Studies found that the amount
of time and energy demanded by re-
cycling, lack of an individual's
sense that their participation will
make a difference, and lack of social
support were common barriers
found that prevent participation,
DeYoung said.
The study concluded that a
greater effort must be made by edu-
cators to overcome these barriers if
recycling participation is to
increase.

LSA senior Dave Nelson disposes of his recyclable items in the proper
receptacles.
