Detroit Recycles


Get your blue recycling cart!


The City of Detroit offers free, curbside recycling to all single-family homes and buildings with 1-4 units. It’s a voluntary program, and all residents must request their cart.

If you live in a larger apartment building, you can bring your recyclables to Recycle Here!, the city’s recycling drop-off site. You can also ask your property manager about adding recycling service to your building.

Join thousands of your neighbors who are protecting their environment by recycling. Get your cart free by attending a workshop with Zero Waste Detroit or Green Living Science. You can also play our online Recycling Challenge Game and request a cart when you win!
