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, Green For Life (GFL) Environmental Inc. will begin delivering Sterling Heights residents enhanced recycling services, including weekly curbside recycling pick-up at a cost of $57 per year compared to the current $90 charge for bi-weekly service from WM. 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. In addition, all current subscribers will be receiving notice in mid July the prorated reimbursement from WM and an explanation on how to sign up for new service under GFL which can be done via phone or through GFL’s website. All existing WM carts will be collected and replaced with new 64 gallon carts from GFL.
The City of Sterling Heights is working closely with WM and GFL to ensure a smooth transition of services to those residents receiving these services.
