Waste Reduction Is a Shared Responsibility
If we each do our part, we can make a big difference in reducing our solid waste and disposal costs. This is good for the City and good for the environment.

Helpful Recycling Tips
  • Avoid disposable items whenever possible. Although they are convenient at times, by eliminating disposables in everyday use, you reduce your solid waste.
  • Reuse items whenever possible. Plastic grocery bags, plastic baggies, and even butter tubs can be used over and over again before discarding.
  • Washtenaw County offers a Home Toxins Reduction Center. The County staff is trained to handle these wastes. Call Washtenaw County for more information.
  • Compost piles are not just for grass and leaves. Raw vegetables, fruit, coffee grounds, tea bags and egg shells may also be composted. For more information on composting, call Washtenaw County.
