Sterling Heights to Roll Out New Waste, Recycling Carts

SEATTLE (Recycling Monster): Clinton Township-based Priority Waste announced that it will deliver one 95-gallon dark green refuse cart and one 65-gallon blue curbside recycling cart to residents of Sterling Heights city. The move is further to city’s decision to transition to a unified cart system and universal curbside recycling.

According to city officials, residents may begin using the new containers on their first scheduled collection day, on or after 1st May, 2024.

In order to educate residents on the changeover to the new system, Sterling Heights has launched a campaign called “We’re On a Roll” developed by The Recycling Partnership. As part of it, every resident will receive two pieces of direct mail about the program. They will also receive a set of instructions on cart usage. In addition, information about the program will be featured in various social media platforms as well as local newspapers.

Earlier in September 2023, the Sterling Heights City Council had reached a 10-year contract for waste collection and curbside recycling services with Priority Waste. The curbside recycling services are the result of grants from the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE) and The Recycling Partnership.

Mayor Michael Taylor thanked EGLE and The Recycling Partnership for their support to the city’s recycling program, which he said is going to make a significant positive impact on the environment.
