Recycling center is now open for business

Recycling has now returned to Hamtramck.


By Charles Sercombe
Hamtramck’s new recycling program is now officially open for business.
On Monday, a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held at the new drop-off site, located just east of Conant at 3900 Christopher St.
This is the first time the city has had a permanent site – something city officials and community members have sought for a number of years.
Even Hamtramck High School students got involved in the cause.
Before this, volunteers ran a once-a-month program out of city parking lot on Caniff.
The drop-off site is part of a new sanitation contract the city awarded to Priority Waste Holdings, which is operating across the street from the recycling bins.
The drop-off center is open every day and operates 24 hours a day.
The only downside is that currently only a limited number of types of recycling waste will be accepted: paper, cardboard, and #1 and #2 plastics.
For those wishing to get rid of bulk items, these can be dropped off on Saturdays, from noon to 3 p.m.

    There are no signs saying where to drop off so recycling really isn’t here if it can’t be found
