Recycling Program Enhancements
Plymouth Township offers year round curbside recycling to our residents. All single family residences and multiple family residences that utilize our solid waste services should have a green 65 gallon recycle cart on the premises. If you do not, please call the Solid Waste Department, (734) 354-3270, so that you are able to participate in this important program.
Residences that use separate waste hauler services are also offered recycling options through the Township. Please call the department for more information.
