Curbside Recycling

Why Recycle?

Did you know that approximately 75% of the trash that is thrown away each week is recyclable? Yet only 25% is actually recycled. One of the cornerstones of The City of Westland Mission Green Initiative is Recycling.

The City of Westland is excited to offer its residents curbside single stream recycling. Explore more information about our curbside recycling program and what can be recycled at the Recycling Simplified website.
