A separate truck picks up large metal items such as appliances, hot water tanks, etc. for recycling on the same day as your regular refuse collection day. Items must be at the curb by 7:00 a.m. on refuse day. Please separate these items from your regular refuse by 2 - 3 feet. Refrigerator and freezer doors must be removed for safety reasons due to state law (just place to side). If you live on a cul-de-sac, dead-end or apartment/condo complex the Department of Public Service office should be notified the day prior to your refuse collection day by calling 248) 246-3300.
Please note, some smaller items such as microwaves, small metal car parts (no engines), metal garden furniture, small metal furniture, etc. may be discarded. To ensure the smaller item is recycled please take to SOCRRA, 995 Coolidge, for recycling. Thank you.
