Recycling workshop coming February 12

The City of Detroit and Zero Waste Detroit will present a workshop on community recycling. This is a chance for Detroiters to learn about the new curbside recycling program in our area. The workshop will happen on Friday, February 12 from 1 - 2 p.m. in the upstairs gym at the Don Bosco Center (19321 W. Chicago).

There is normally a $25 fee to receive a recycling bin and thus be able to participate in curbside recycling. However, most people who attend this workshop will receive one for free.

In order to receive the free recycling bin, Detroit residents must attend this workshop and live in either a single-family home or a multi-family housing unit with no more than four units in it. Residents of larger apartment complexes are not eligible. Trash and recycling in such complexes is generally handled by a private contractor rather than the City of Detroit.
