Western Washtenaw Recycling Bond OK’d

At its Oct. 6, 2010 meeting, the Washtenaw County board of commissioners gave final approval to initiate the bonding process for a Western Washtenaw Recycling Authority Public Works project. The $2.8 million project would expand and upgrade WWRA facilities, including the addition of equipment for single-stream recycling. The facility serves Chelsea and the townships of Bridgewater, Dexter, Lima and Lyndon. The resolution passed on Wednesday initiates the process, which is subject to future board approval after a contract is negotiated between the county and municipalities.
