Detroit Recycles

The City of Detroit is collecting recycling materials placed in the designated container at the curb every other week.  The recycling program is voluntary, and residents must opt-in. The program is open to all residents, including those who did not previously recycle.

Residents must opt-in to participate in recycling program

If you're not recycling, now is a great time to join thousands of Detroiters who are protecting the environment and creating less pollution by recycling.   All residents will need to purchase the recycling cart for $25 to participate in the recycling program. Residents must contact their designated contractor to purchase the recycling cart.
