Drop-Off Station Introduces Textile Recycling

Customers have often called inquiring about textile recycling programs which, until now, our facility has been unable to provide. Recycle Ann Arbor aims to develop the Drop-Off Station into a “one-stop” location for all customers’ recycling and waste needs. By providing textile recycling, we are moving closer to becoming that location for our community.

To provide customers with a requested service and a convenient system, a textile collection box has been placed at the Drop-Off Station by City Recyclers.
