Michigan cities, which love to pride themselves on being green, are giving a red light to outdoor recycling bins on private property. Grand Rapids, the latest city to ban the boxes, claims the bins are a source of uncontained trash but the city has not provided any documentation of complaints. Property owners say the recycling organizations have been responsive in emptying the bins. The city will allow outdoor bins on property of businesses that are in the recycling business, like Goodwill and The Salvation Army but others are out of luck. Recyclers say the bans are becoming common place as the recycling industry grows. Grand Rapids will fine violators $100.
