Small community size allows Forest County Potawatomi to become a state recycling leader

CRANDON - Tribal members on the Forest County Potawatomi reservation recycle twice as much material as an average person in Wisconsin. The tribe's efforts made it one of just three programs in Wisconsin named a Recycling Rate Leader by the DNR.

Tony Daniels is a Collection Technician for the tribe. Most weekdays, he's on the road, collecting garbage and recycling from tribal homes.

"It makes me feel good that I'm helping the community and keeping stuff out of the landfill. We're really doing a good job on the recycling," Daniels said.
