Work continues on Leadership Connect recycling project for boardwalk

Participants in this year's Leadership Connect class are hoping that their hard work will change the habits of boardwalkers along the Grand Haven channel. "We think that it's going to be an exciting project,' class member Jessica DesNoyers said of the project, "and we want the community to be excited about it, too,' Run by the Chamber of Commerce Grand Haven-Spring Lake-Ferrysburg, the Leadership Connect class has started work on a project called "Recycle. Grand Haven.'

“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.
