Curbside Recycling Program

As of April 28, 2017:

Waste Management (WM) has informed the City of Sterling Heights it will be terminating its voluntary, fee-based curbside recycling program for City residents effective July 31, 2017.

Effective August 1, 2017, GFL Environmental Inc. will begin delivering Sterling Heights residents enhanced recycling services, including weekly curbside recycling pick-up. In advance of this commencement date, all City residents will be receiving information from GFL Environmental via mail regarding how to subscribe for the enhanced services and the annual cost to participate.

Residents with questions about their service should reach out to Waste Management at the following contact points:


“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, GFL workers will pick up recyclables weekly on the same day as regular refuse collection.
