Waste Management provides the Sterling Heights Voluntary Curbside Recycling Program. Under the program, Waste Management will furnish subscribers with a 96-gallon container for recyclables at a cost of $7.50 per month, along with a 1-time $5 fee to set up an account.
“This voluntary service offers residents the best of both worlds,” Public Works Director Mike Moore said. “Those who want to utilize a convenient, low cost pickup service now can recycle at the curb. It also allows those who want to continue utilizing our 3 voluntary recycling drop-off centers to do so free of charge.”
Pick Up Schedule
For homeowners who choose the service, Waste Management workers will pick up recyclables every other week on the same day as regular refuse collection. All recyclable materials will be placed into a single-stream, 96-gallon heavy-duty container.
