Greater capacity, greater good Recycling up 10 percent
Recycling is on the increase in Becker County.
In 2010, county residents recycled more than 9,000 tons of various commodities, from paper, plastic and cardboard to metal, glass and electronic, to florescent bulbs, paint and batteries, among other items.
Last year, those numbers grew by nearly 10 percent, and the county is expecting more growth this year, said Sandy Gunderson, recycling coordinator for Becker County.
