Recycling remains a focus for local government leaders in Michigan, but a new U-M report suggests that those leaders often encounter difficulties in implementing their programs, tied to costs, improper recycling practices by users and a lack of end markets for their recycled materials.

The researchers offer further insight concerning results from the report.
