Promoting Commercial Recycling: A Sustainable Solution for Your Organization

Updated: Jun 21, 2023

Welcome to the world of commercial recycling, where sustainability meets practicality. In the bustling City of Detroit, recycling is not just limited to residential areas. The Department of Public Works has introduced an affordable and convenient single-stream recycling service designed specifically for non-residential properties. Green Living Science, as the trusted recycling education contractor for DPW, is here to help businesses, non-profits, houses of worship, multifamily housing, and other entities start their recycling journey. Fill out our interest form or contact Logan Applebee at or (313) 871-4000 ext. 701 to learn more about the Commercial Recycling Program.

The program offers an attractive low-cost option and the simplicity of single-stream recycling —accepting cardboard, mixed paper, glass, metal, and hard plastics #1-7—all in one container. As an added bonus, the commercial recycling program provides complimentary education sessions and signage to ensure a seamless transition for your organization.
