Waste Management opens Detroit Recycling Center


Waste Management provides recycling and solid waste services to private businesses in Detroit and also the Department of Public Works

Waste Management, Inc., the largest provider of comprehensive waste and environmental services in North America, has opened its Detroit Recycling Center in Michigan. The 63,000 square-foot facility on Lynch Road will manage 150 tons of recyclables per day for commercial businesses and residential households in southeast Michigan.

The company invested $2 million to renovate the building and to install equipment capable of processing the recyclable materials every day. The facility will initially recycle cardboard, office paper, shredded paper, and industrial plastics from Waste Management’s customers in southeast Michigan. It will expand the operations to accommodate materials from the upcoming City of Detroit pilot recycling collection program. Waste Management will employ a staff of six to oversee the operations of the recycling facility.

David Steiner, Chief Executive Officer of Waste Management, said that the facility will help its residential and commercial customers in the Detroit Metropolitan Area to “Think Green.”

Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano also agreed, saying, “Recycling is becoming increasingly important as businesses, counties and cities seek to reduce their environmental impact. This facility will make Wayne County a 'greener’ place to do business by giving Waste Management's local customers an increased opportunity to recycle.”

Waste Management provides recycling and solid waste services to private businesses in Detroit and also the Department of Public Works, Greater Detroit Resource Recovery Authority, and the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department. The company also has a transfer station and hauling company in the city, operating for more than three decades now.
