Michigan residents with shrink-wrap to recycle will be able to participate in Dr. Shrink's Recycling Run 2011.

For the second year Dr. Shrink is partnering with Bay Area Recycling for Charities in Traverse City for pickups in Michigan. This year its 48-foot trailer will make two runs, one in April and the other in May.

Profits from the effort will be donated to local Michigan charities.

Participants will be required to buy Rebag recycling kits for $2.50 apiece from Dr. Shrink and stuff them with shrink-wrap - no strapping, buckles, vents or other contaminants. Participants then fill out a form with their address and request a week for pickup.

Forms can be obtained by contacting Dr. Shrink Inc. or Andy Gale of Bay Area Recycling at andy@mybarc.org.
