Curbside Recycling for Single-family Residences

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.

Single-stream recycling is easy and convenient, which encourages residents to recycle the most materials possible. Single-stream recycling allows all recyclables to be placed into one recycling bin without separating papers from containers.

The City of Ann Arbor’s single-stream recycling system allows a wide variety of materials to be collected and recycled. Acceptable materials include plastic bottles and tubs labeled: Recyclable plastics icons 1,2,4,5,6,7 and bulky plastics, glass, metal, paper, boxboard, and cardboard.
