The Leelanau Enterprise reports that recycling will continue in Leelanau County … but not everywhere. According to the Enterprise:
The Leelanau County Board of Commissioners decided this week to add a $25-per-household fee to December tax bills in seven of the countyâ€™s 11 townships. Meanwhile, residents of the four townships where an annual per-household fee was voted down in the Aug. 8 Primary election will not be charged the fee, nor will the county ask residents of those townships to pay the fee â€œvoluntarily.â€
Starting next year, residents of those four townships â€“ Bingham, Cleveland, Kasson and Solon â€“ will be guilty of â€œlarceny by conversionâ€ if they deposit recyclable materials at any of the countyâ€™s recycling sites.Â
Editor’s (snarky) note: Might we also charge them with a count or two of “Environment Responsiblity” or “Preservation of Scarce Resources”?
