Quarterly solid waste updates
Solid waste plan
Ann Arbor is rethinking waste by taking a fresh look at recycling, trash and compost operations in the City. This strategic approach to future solid waste services has culminated in the creation of a new Solid Waste Resource Management Plan (SWRMP), which sets the direction of solid waste operations in Ann Arbor in the years to come.
Materials Recovery Facility (MRF)
In 2020, Recycle Ann Arbor and the city executed a service agreement and land and building lease for the Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) located at 4170 Platt Road. The agreement is for 10 years with the potential for two 3-year extensions. The agreement is for transloading, re-equipping of the MRF, and recyclables processing after re-equipping. While the MRF is being re-equipped, recyclables will be transloaded to the Resource Recovery and Recycling Authority of Southwest Oakland County (RRRASOC) for processing. The expected re-equipping completion date is anticipated for late 2021. The finalized MRF will provide materials recovery services to the City of Ann Arbor and third parties. Questions should be directed to Recycle Ann Arbor.
Solid waste regulations
The regulations that govern solid waste disposal and curbside collection can be found under City Code Chapter 26 of the City of Ann Arbor. These regulations can be found through a search of Ann Arbor's ordinances
