Ann Arbor's municipal Materials Recovery Facility (MRF), located at 4150 Platt Road, is the City's recycling plant. Free open houses and pre-arranged week day group tours are available.
Houses are offered on one
Saturday morning per month
from 10 a.m. - Noon, September through June, to give the public a chance to tour the MRF’s
recycling operations, and participate in monthly featured activities. Visit the
Ecology Center online here to
learn more about tour dates.
Weekday Group Tours are available for groups of 15-36 (including drivers and siblings) between September and June and are free of charge. A visit typically runs 60-90 minutes and can be scheduled between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Children under age 6 enjoy activities in the classroom only and are not permitted on the MRF floor. Larger groups may be accommodated in some cases. Visit the Ecology Center online here to learn more about group tours.
