Recycling Overview

RRRASOC MRF Fire
Posted May 29, 2014

The RRRASOC MRF building had a fire on Tuesday. The building sustained significant damage, but luckily nobody was hurt.

1. The Southfield drop-off is closed until further notice.
Additionally, the C&D debris containers are closed.

2. The Novi drop-off remains open.
Please note that location does not accept Styrofoam or electronics.

3. Curbside service is unaffected.
Recycling materials will be rerouted to other MRFs in the area.

Child pushing recycling cartResidents of Farmington Hills recycle at a rate higher than average for the state of Michigan.  Over 54% of the garbage and yard waste generated annually is recycled rather than being sent to the landfill.  Participation at annual household hazardous waste days also ensures proper disposal and/or recycling of oil-based paint, pesticides, chemicals, solvents, used computer equipment, and other hazardous materials, therefore removing them from the solid waste stream. 

The City of Farmington Hills provides recycling through RRRASOC – the Resource, Recovery and Recycling Authority of Southwest Oakland County.  The City is one of seven member communities that participated in a private/public partnership and built a Materials Recovery Facility (MRF) on Eight Mile Road in Southfield.  Other member communities of RRRASOC include Farmington, Novi, South Lyon, Southfield, Walled Lake, and Wixom.

RRRASOC’s Materials Recovery Facility processes the recyclable items that go at the curbside in the green recycling bin.  RRRASOC also provides Farmington Hills residents with access to two regional recycling drop-off centers (in Novi and Southfield) and offers tours and environmental education.
