If you live in Detroit, and if you are reading this, you probably do, you know that Detroit does not have a curbside recycling or composting program. In fact, Detroit is the only city, of the United States’ largest 30, not to have a curbside recycling program.

Detroit residents, you know what this means. This means we all have our own little private collection of recyclables in our houses, apartments, lofts, condos, townhomes, etc. We all have that cupboard we shove plastic into before we go to work. We all have that closet we shove bottles into after a party. And we all have that really secret spot. That one that we shove stuff into when all our other spots are full. And, with uniformity, we all faithfully claim that we will all gather our collection up and take it to the recycling center. But we don't. We let it sit and gather and fester.

Thus was born Detroit Greencycle, a business, owned and operated in Corktown, created solely to take your stuff to the recycling center and you compost to local gardens. And we do this in a zero emission way: we bike it there. That’s right. Come rain, shine, sleet, or snow, we will tie  a flatbed to a bike, bike to your house, get your stuff, and then head up Trumbull. We do it for a modest fee. We do it with regularity. And we do it with a smile.

Hi Curbside. I am Detroit.
