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 A Brighter Way.
A Brighter Way reduces recidivism and heals communities by providing mentoring and building vital social support networks for people returning from jails and prisons to Washtenaw County. Through one-on-one relationships, group mentoring, and connection to critical resources, we help people to define and achieve their goals to find a successful life on the outside. Now recruiting volunteers!
