Ann Arbor Recycling Options

As part of Earth Day, I thought I would also share some information on recycling options.

EWaste & Prescription Take Back Events

Ann Arbor Public Schools and University of Michigan Planet Blue usually team up on a large eWaste recycling event in the spring at Pioneer High School. This year they are planning one for June. They are looking for an alternate location due to the construction on Stadium Blvd near Pioneer.

There are a few other events.

No Events

Home Toxins

The Washtenaw County Home Toxins Reduction Program provides safe disposal of many home toxins. We have used this FREE program with great success in the past.

Hazardous Household Waste Disposal

Prescription Drugs

Medication should not be flushed down the toilet. Select Pharmacies can take back non-controlled prescription and over the counter drugs. Some police stations provide a Big Red Barrel Program that will accept prescription or over the counter pills including controlled substances. More information can be found on Washtenaw County’s website.
