Recycling Service
Auburn Hills Is Partnering with Waste Management to Recycle Often and Recycle Right.

Did you know that nearly 1 in 4 items placed in every recycling bin isn't actually recyclable? That's why we are working with Waste Management on helping our residents to simplify recycling at home with their Recycle Often. Recycle Right. campaign! 

Recycling is at risk and we need your help!

Recyclables are collected and sorted every day, but only a small portion of those items can actually be processed for re-use. This happens because the wrong items or trash is placed in the recycle bin. We call this recycling contamination.  You can learn more about recycling contamination by watching the video below.





Becoming a Master of Recycling isn’t as difficult as you might think. 

Getting back to the basic is the first step to successfully help our world with its recycling problem.
