Curbside Recycling Basics
Learn about the DOs and DON’Ts of Detroit’s curbside recycling program
Where does Detroit's waste go?
In 2015, only 1% of the waste in Detroit homes was recycled. As a community, it is imperative that we 1) encourage more Detroiters to participate in curbside recycling and 2) educate ourselves on which items can and cannot can be recycled. Did you know that some cities like San Francisco reuse, recycle and compost up to 80% of their waste? Let's rise to the recycling challenge, Detroit!
Just a heads-up that we now have a new way for people to sign up for weekly trash / recycling / bulk pickup reminders: text your street address to 313-800-7905! (This makes signup easier for people who don’t have internet access.)
