We have deep roots in the Ann Arbor community having first begun collecting recyclables over 30 years ago in 1977. The early years were a true grassroots program: just a truck and some concerned Ann Arbor citizens with the initiative to make a difference. This is our community and we give back by the service we provide, the partnerships we create, and the programs we support.
Together we can make a difference.
Our Community Programs
Visit the ReUse Center to Donate. Each quarter we collect donations for a different charity. Currently, we are collecting donations for the Syrian American Rescue Network (SARN).
SARN’s mission is to provide humanitarian and economic support to Syrian refugees as they reach self-sufficiency in Michigan. To accommodate the growing number of Syrian refugees coming to our area, SARN has now expanded into Washtenaw County, providing English as a Second Language training, tutoring, cultural mentoring, mental health support, job placement, social events and networking and support among fellow refugees.
