When it comes to bottle deposit redemption, Michigan leads the country.
But when it comes to overall recycling, the state's governor isn't very happy.
Bottles make up just part, albeit a highly visible portion, of plastics recycling and recycling in general.
Gov. Rick Snyder used part of his last State of the State address to highlight his overall disappointment in recycling efforts in the state.
"This has probably been one of the most disappointing initiatives I've had in my time as governor. We've gotten complacent, we thought we did the deposit law so were doing great on recycling. We're behind, we're half the national average on recycling," he said in a transcript of his recent speech.
Michigan's 10-cent bottle deposit, double that in most other bottle bill states, helps keep container recycling well above 90 percent in Michigan. Oregon, just last year, went to a 10-cent deposit to help boost recovery rates.
"We have to do more, it's for our own good and it's for the well-being of our society and our world," said Snyder, who will serve throughout 2018.
