Recycling operations will soon become more localized in the Ann Arbor area. The Materials Recovery facility, or the MRF, has been closed for processing for about four years. It will be overhauled, and processing functions are expected to be operational in summer of 2021. Recycle Ann Arbor has a 10-year contract to run the MRF. In this week's "Issues of the Environment," WEMU's David Fair talks with Recycle Ann Arbor’s director of strategy, Bryan Weinert, about localizing recycling once again.
