Help keep yard waste out of landfills!
Michigan HB 4265 and HB 4266 will seriously weaken Michigan's longstanding ban on landfill disposal of segregated yard trimmings by exempting landfills with gas recovery systems. These “Grass-to-Gas” bills are moving very quickly this legislative session and could come up for a vote in the full House as early as Wednesday, March 14th. There have been amendments added to permit the incineration of yard trimmings.
These bills repeal the ban on yard waste going into landfills and will result in composting facilities closing, workers being laid off, and the related business activities in the community ending. We strongly oppose this legislation that will send a message to small businesses that Michigan is not the place to set up shop.
Michigan residents can send a message to the Michigan House of Representatives urging them to oppose HB 4265 and HB 4266 by filling out the form below.
