Inside Milwaukee's Recycling Center

Spring cleaning season is here!  And as you head into your basement or storage locker, the City of Milwaukee is reminding you to recycle.

Recycling became easier for residents last fall when the city launched its "single sort" program.  Now instead of separating recyclables, you can simply mix them together in one bin.  

The city is also accepting new items -- additional plastics, pots and pans, and food cartons.  Find a full list of accepted items here.

And click the podcast player to hear from Resource Recovery Program Manager Rick Meyers.  He explains how citizens have embraced the change.
