SOCRRA Communities Get Mixed Recycling, New Bins on the Way

(SOCRRA, June 5, 2017)

Troy, MI – Recycling is about to get a lot easier for residents in SOCCRA communities. This summer SOCRRA will deliver a 65 gallon recycling cart to every single family household in its member communities.  And because SOCRRA is converting to a mixed recycling facility, all curbside recyclables can be mixed together in the new cart!  No need to keep paper separate from all the recyclables – just throw it all in and wheel it to the curb. Recycling will now be as easy as taking out the trash!

“We are excited to lunch the next recycling and deliver the new curbside carts, “said Jeff McKeen, general manager of SOCRRA. “These changes will make recycling easier than ever for our residents. ”

Not only will recycling be easier, but the new carts will help residents to recycle more. The new carts can hold three times more recyclables in the current recycling bins.

Cart delivery will begin in mid July and finish up in September. There are a lot of SOCRRA residents, so we won’t be able to pinpoint an exact delivery date. But as soon as you get your cart, you can start using it! Look for the info card that will be with your cart and remember – with mixed recycling all curbside recyclables go together in one cart!

Beverly Hills and Huntington Woods have already been successfully using the bins in their communities!

SOCRRA is comprised of member communities who work together to have better trash disposal rates and a strong recycling program. Berkley, Beverly Hills, Birmingham, Clawson, Ferndale, Hazel Park, Huntington Woods, Lathrup Village, Oak Park, Pleasant Ridge, Royal Oak and Troy are all involved. Communities pay based on tonnage, and get rebates based on recycling.
