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.  The MRF is now up and running. It provides 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 Ci​ty of Ann Arbor. These regulations can be found through a search of ​Ann Arbor's ordinances.
