Customers have often called inquiring about textile recycling programs which, until now, our facility has been unable to provide. Recycle Ann Arbor aims to develop the Drop-Off Station into a “one-stop” location for all customers’ recycling and waste needs. By providing textile recycling, we are moving closer to becoming that location for our community.
To provide customers with a requested service and a convenient system, a textile collection box has been placed at the Drop-Off Station by City Recyclers.

To provide customers with a requested service and a convenient system, effective September 1st, Recycle Ann Arbor is launching a document shredding service which utilizes lock boxes.
The shredding service will cost $4 per grocery bag and $6 per banker’s box. A grocery bag typically holds around 16lbs of paper, the equivalent price per pound is 25 cents. A similar service at a local office supply retailer is 79 cents per pound. Customers using the service will still be subject to the $3 entry fee, but can maximize their visit by bringing other materials for recycling.

The Zero Waste Volunteer Team helps educate festival patrons about proper recycling and composting methods at special events throughout the City of Ann Arbor. During the four summer events this year, 30 volunteers helped shape the success of our Zero Waste events.
Recycle Ann Arbor would like to recognize the efforts of one such volunteer with the designation of “Volunteer of the Summer!”

The Drop-Off Station staff collected data on the weights and screen sizes of TVs brought to the site over a three month period. The TVs ranged from less than 10 pounds to over 200, and had screen sizes ranging from 9 inches to over 60. Using the data it was calculated that a cost of $0.85 per inch, corner to corner on screen size would be the best pricing adjustment.
