SOCRRA Bin Blitz--$6 Recycle Bin Sale


SOCRRA and its 12 member communities are pleased to offer a special sale on recycle bins during the month of November 2008.  Residents of Berkley, Beverly Hills, Birmingham, Clawson, Ferndale, Hazel Park, Huntington Woods, Lathrup Village, Oak Park, Pleasant Ridge, Royal Oak and Troy will be able to purchase bins for $6 (or less) during November 2008. 


Residents have three opportunities to purchase a recycle bin at the sale price. 


  • Bin Blitz Recycle Bin Sale Event, Saturday November 8th from 9 am – 2 pm at the SOCRRA Material Recycling Facility (MRF) located at 995 Coolidge, in Troy (between 14 and 15 Mile Roads, across from Meijer).  The first 100 cars will receive a free SOCRRA recycled tote bag.  Please bring proof of residency.  Limit 2 bins per address. SOCRRA residents only.


  • Visit your city’s Department of Public Works during the month of November.  Please call your DPW office for locations and hours.


  • Visit the SOCRRA Material Recycling Facility (MRF) at 995 Coolidge, Troy, during the month of November.  The SOCRRA MRF will have green “SOCRRA” recycle bins available during the month of November during the following times:  Monday – Friday 8am-6pm; Saturdays 8am-2pm.  Bins are available in the office.


This special recycle bin sale is in response to resident feedback and a recent survey conducted by SOCRRA.  “We realized that most people need evening or weekend hours to be able purchase a new or additional bin”, says Jeff McKeen, SOCRRA’s General Manager.  Residents are also encouraged to use as many bins as they need for recycling.  “Last summer, SOCRRA surveyed recyclables set out at the curb and a lot of people could use more than one bin each week.”


Last year, SOCRRA residents recycled 31,000,000 pounds of paper, plastic, metal and glass.  Every piece of paper, bottle or can set in a recycle bin equals cash for each member community, who were rebated approximately $860,0000 in 2007.  SOCRRA residents’ recycling efforts last year saved 221,000 trees, 6000 gallons of fuel, and saved enough energy to power all of the homes in Beverly Hills for a full year.
