Residential Recycling

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

SOCRRA provides both curbside and drop-off residential recycling programs for its 12 member communities - Berkley, Beverly Hills, Birmingham, Clawson, Ferndale, Hazel Park, Huntington Woods, Lathrup Village, Oak Park, Pleasant Ridge, Royal Oak and Troy.  

On average, SOCRRA recycles 13,000 tons of paper, plastic, metal, and glass recyclables collected at the curb each year.  SOCRRA accepts newspapers, magazines, office paper, junk mail, boxboard, cardboard, drink boxes and milk cartons, all plastic containers, metal cans, glass bottles and jars and more at the curb.

SOCRRA member communities earn a rebate for every ton of recyclables collected by SOCRRA.  Every piece of paper, bottle or can set in a recycling cart is “cash” for the community.  For our member communities, recycling avoids disposal costs, and provides revenue sharing on the sale of recyclables once they are sorted and processed by SOCRRA.  Participating your community’s recycling program will help to offset costs to operate recycling and trash collection services.
