Recycling Services

Recycle Ann Arbor pioneered curbside recycling in the Ann Arbor community in 1977 in a grassroots effort to make better use of our resources and to reduce waste. Today, Recycle Ann Arbor is contracted by the City of Ann Arbor to collect recyclables weekly at the curb from City of Ann Arbor residents, in a single-stream collection system. Recycle Ann Arbor also offers free recycling to businesses located within the City of Ann Arbor.

Drop-Off Recycling 

Drop Off recycling services were first offered by the Ecology Center at Arborland Mall in 1970. In 1977, Recycle Ann Arbor formed to increase Ann Arbor recycling and began picking up recyclables curbside. Then in 1981, the two organizations merge, then later in 1990, Recycle Ann Arbor begins to operate the Drop Off Station which was then located on S. Industrial. Now the Drop-Off Station is located at 2950 Ellsworth Rd., open three days a week: Tu, Th, from 8:30 am to 6:30 pm and Sat from  9 am to 6 pm.

Zero Waste Service

The Zero Waste Special Event Pilot Program currently contracts with (a limited number of) local large-scale festivals and private events to maximize the amount of materials composted, recycled, or reused at an event- while minimizing the overall trash (to landfill) produced. Services included in the event fee are variable per event type, but typically include: rental of Zero Waste disposal stations, disposal of event waste, volunteer/vendor coordination, and pre-event consulting.

During the first full year (2012-2013) of services, the program was able to divert an average of 93% of event(s) waste from landfill. In 2014, the diversion rate was 95% among events.

If possible, it is highy recommended to contact us at least 2-3 months prior to your event to secure a pre-event quote and services. The ability to host your event is fully dependent upon available rental stations, staff, and volunteers for your needed date and time.
