“Prior to this project, I’d never been a big recycler,” class member Jill Heyboer said. “It’s definitely created an awareness with me at my own home and my own business.”
The goal of this project is to install new recycling/trash receptacles along the Grand Haven boardwalk. The group announced last month that they were beginning fundraising for the project, with the goal to eventually install 17 bins along the boardwalk, which would cost a total of $34,000.
After the bins are installed, the city’s Department of Public Works will collect the recyclables.
