LANSING (WKZO) -- Michigan residents dumped less garbage in state landfills last year, but Canadian trash going into state landfills is up. A report from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality says Michigan garbage dropped by 0.5-percent, but trash from Canada is up 13-percent. The state says this isn't a surprise because Canada trash makes up about 17-percent of garbage in Michigan landfills.
