Commercial Recycling Program

Recycling for Businesses and Multifamily Housing

The Department of Public Works offers recycling services to commercial properties.

Interested in learning more? Fill out our form, or contact our Recycling Coordinator.

Whom it’s for:

  • Commercial properties
  • Multifamily residential buildings with more than 4 units (apartment buildings)
    • Residential condominiums are NOT eligible for this service.
    • Residential buildings with 4 or fewer units can participate in the Detroit Recycles single-family curbside recycling program for free.
  • Note that not all properties may be physically suited for recycling service by the Department of Public Works.

How it works:

  1. Let us know you’re interested - fill out the Commercial Recycling Interest Form or contacting our Recycling Coordinator, Madi Opperthauser, [email protected].
  2. We visit your property and educate your staff/residents on how to recycle with confidence
  3. You sign up for 96-gallon carts or 450-gallon dumpsters for weekly service by the Department of Public Works
  4. We drop off your containers, and you can start to reduce your impact on the environment and send fewer materials to the landfill!
