If you live in an apartment complex, condominium, duplex, or other multifamily living
residence within a RRRASOC member community, there are a number of services available to help you properly manage your recyclables and other hard to recycle items.

There are a variety of ways that multifamily residences can still recycle with ease! From Drop-Off Sites to HHW Collection Events, we work to provide all of our member communities with outlets to dispose responsibly and live sustainably.


RRRASOC provides 2 drop-off sites for standard recyclable items like cardboard, paper, milk and juice cartons, paper cups, plastic bottles and jugs, metal cans, and glass bottles and jars. The drop-off sites are free and open to the public during daylight hours, 7 days a week – including holidays. For more information regarding the Novi and Southfield drop-off sites, click here.


Household cleaners, paints, herbicides, insecticides, and solvents are harmful to the environment if thrown into a regular landfill, or worse – dumped down a drain or poured on the ground. These items are often flammable, combustible, corrosive, reactive, or toxic. RRRASOC community members may bring their HHW to a Collection Event for an opportunity to safely discard their hazardous items.

HHW Collection Events offered in RRRASOC communities also accept e-waste, batteries, medications, fluorescent bulbs, and more. For a full list of what is accepted, click here.

Don’t want to wait for an HHW Collecion Event? Save time and avoid the line by dropping off your HHW at ERG Environmental Services in Livonia without a fee. Visit to learn more.


Simple Recycling is also available at most HHW Collection Events, where residents can recycle unwanted clothing, shoes, accessories, and other household items such as kitchenware, tools, toys, and books. Simple Recycling partners with local charities to make sure your gently used items stay within your community to be reused.


Paper shredding is also available on-site at HHW Collection Events. Loose paper documents are fed to an industrial-sized shredder to ensure your personal documents remain confidential. Paper shredding is also available year-round at the same location as the Southfield recycling drop-off site. Visit our Paper Shredding page to learn more.


Do you have items you are looking to get rid of before or after moving? Instead of tossing them in the garbage – thus sending them to the landfill where all reusable value is lost – have them donated! Find secondhand stores, charities, clean-out services, and more that will accept your gently used items over on our Reuse/Repurpose page. You’ll even find ways to repurpose old items to save both resources and money!


Batteries cannot be collected curbside or at the drop-off sites as they are considered HHW. Improper disposal of batteries can result in fires and can put our collection crews, MRF workers, and even you at risk of injury. All types of batteries, including rechargeable, alkaline, lead-acid, lithium, and button cell are accepted at HHW Collection Events. Click here for upcoming events near you.

Automotive, marine, and other lead-acid batteries are also accepted by any automotive battery retailer.
