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!
