Recycling Drop-Off Services

City of Ypsilanti residents are eligible to sign up for a pass to use Recycle Ann Arbor's Drop-Off Station at a reduced rate. Commercial entities are not eligible for this pass. Please fill out the electronic form to sign up for a pass.  Paper forms  and same-day passes are available at City Hall during normal business hours.  If you currently have a pass that notes an expiration date in 2020, your pass is still valid, and there is no need to replace it.

The Recycle Ann Arbor Drop-Off Station accepts the same items the City accepts curbside, plus oversize items and all the items on the below list.  This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Paper (including shredded paper)
  • Cardboard
  • Plastics (#1, #2, and #5 only)
  • Metal
  • Glass food and beverage containers
  • Up to 3 bags of textiles
  • Automotive and rechargeable batteries
  • Up to 5 gallons of motor oil
  • Up to 5 gallons of vegetable oil
  • Oil filters

The Drop-Off Station accepts many more items for recycling and disposal, but charges additional fees to accept them. Please check their website at or call (734) 971-7400 for a current list of items they accept as well as fees.
