Recycling Update July 24, 2017:
Waste Management (WM) has informed the City of Sterling Heights it will be terminating its voluntary, fee-based curbside recycling program for City residents effective July 31, 2017.
Effective August 1, 2017, GFL Environmental Inc. will begin delivering Sterling Heights residents enhanced recycling services, including weekly curbside recycling pick-up. In advance of this commencement date, all City residents will be receiving information from GFL Environmental via mail regarding how to subscribe for the enhanced services and the annual cost to participate.
Current WM recycle subscribers will receive direct communication from GFL regarding the recycle program transition and how to continue service with GFL.
