About the Campaign

No one knows more about trash and recycling in Michigan than our raccoons. The Recycling Raccoon Squad is a team of experts, each with a specialty and a personality that reflects that focus – plastic, cardboard, metal, paper, glass and everything else.

Michiganders believe in recycling and support it, but many curbside recyclers don’t know how to do it properly. The squad will teach them the specifics about how to recycle correctly. Confident recyclers will improve both the quality and quantity of Michigan’s recycling.
