Farmington Boasts One of the State’s Highest Recycling Rates

The Farmington area’s recycling authority recently released its 2015 progress report and Farmington gets a gold star. Farmington achieved a 53.14 percent recycling rate for 2015, this is up from 50.8 percent in 2014.

According to Mike Csapo, General Manager of Resource Recovery & Recycling Authority of Southwest Oakland County (RRRASOC), Farmington has one of the highest recycling rates in the state. Last year, Farmington was recognized by The Department of Environmental Quality and Governor’s Recycling Council for excellence in recycling at the Governor’s Recycling Summit.

The metrics report lists Farmington as having recycled 733.9 tons of materials in 2015, and composted 1,501.9 tons of yard waste.

Farmington offers its residence a wide variety of recycling options, providing convenience through curbside pick-up, drop off sites and collection events. To encourage more recycling, the city migrated their smaller box-size recycling bins to 64 gallon bins in 2012 and is now adding a curbside recycling service for clothing and accessories.

“Our recycling rate is likely to increase again this year due to the curbside clothing recycling program that the city is starting this March,” commented Farmington City Manager David M. Murphy.

In November, 2015, the Farmington City Council adopted a resolution to implement a curbside clothing recycling program that was presented by RRRASOC. The program is a free, residential curbside pickup service that will occur on the same day as weekly recycling collection. Additional information will be mailed to households in the next few weeks.

Murphy praises RRRASOC for its constant communication efforts with the community in regards to recycling and its initiative in investigating new programs.

RRRASOC’s user-friendly website is linked to the city of Farmington’s site.
