Zero Waste Detroit has taken the winter by storm with its curbside recycling outreach. In February and March 2016 alone, ZWD hosted 28 curbside recycling workshops and signed up 1,005 Detroit households for free recycling carts! Our work is a testament to residents all over the city who have taken a stand to be a part of a changing Detroit ecosystem that says no to unnecessary waste and pollution and says yes to environmental stewardship. Our phones have been ringing nonstop for weeks, and the demand for recycling carts is high.
ZWD wants to give a special thanks to the following Detroit individuals and organizations that have gone above and beyond to organize and educate their neighbors around curbside recycling this winter:
- Bridging Communities, Inc.

- College Park Community Association & Peggy Noble
- Community Development Advocates of Detroit
