Ann Arbor, MI, now has single-stream recycling, which means they provide a big blue dumpster bin (same size as a trash bin), and the truck collects it and takes it all to the recycling center, where it is separated.
Here in Jackson, MI, I still have to separate my recycling by category. Although there are places I could drive to and put it in their bins, I recently started paying $10/mo for weekly recycling pickups. Most of my trash recycles. Most of my non-recyclable trash is cat litter from my 4 indoor kitties, and I use the big plasticized dry cat food bags to collect it.
I have never heard of recycling not accepting steel cans! I thought that was one thing they made money from by selling the metal!
