The Refuse and Recycling Division provides refuse collection by a private contractor, Tringali Sanitation, once per week servicing over 30,000 single-family homes, condominiums, mobile homes, duplexes, and small commercial businesses. Refuse from 3,284 apartments is also collected on a weekly basis.
City of Troy provides curbside recycling services to about 28,000 households. Troy residents recycled over 4,100 tons of materials including newspapers, glass, plastic, and metals.
New to Troy - Mixed Recycling. Delivery of carts to residents is complete! You can keep your old recycling bins to use as storage around your house or take them to SOCRRA (at 995 Coolidge) to recycle them for free.
***Condo Communities that wish to be included in the new cart program please have your association president or management company contact our Refuse & Recycling Supervisor at 248.524.3399.
You may only use the bin or the cart - please do not put both out to the curb for collection. All recyclables must be placed in the cart; nothing outside of the cart will be collected as recycling. If you have any question, give us a call or click on the link below for more information.
