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 day. Items must be at the curb by 7:00 a.m. of your refuse day. Please separate these items from your regular refuse by 2 - 3 feet. Refrigerators and other similarly shaped appliances must have the doors removed and set to the side for safety reasons under state law. 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 day by calling 248) 246-3300.
Please note, smaller items such as microwaves, small metal car parts (no engines), metal garden furniture, small metal furniture, etc. should be taken to SOCRRA, 995 Coolidge (across from the Meijer gas station), for recycling. Thank you.
