RRRASOC Communities Recycle Better than the U.S. Average

FARMINGTON — The Resource Recovery and Recycling Authority of Southwest Oakland County has tallied its disposal numbers from 2012, and they look very green.

Last year, residents of Farmington, Farmington Hills, Novi, Southfield, South Lyon, Walled Lake, and Wixom recycled nearly 10,000 tons of paper, plastic, metal and glass.  They also composted over 14,000 tons of grass and leaves at local compost facilities.  Finally, RRRASOC residents safely disposed of nearly 300 tons of household hazardous waste.

The U.S. recycling rate average is 34.10 percent. RRRASOC residents average a recycling rate of 38.55 percent.
