SOCRRA has transitioned from the current dual-stream recycling to mixed recycling. With mixed recycling, Berkley residents can place all recyclables in a single container instead of separating materials by type. This process is easier and, at the same time, increases the number of recycled materials. For more details from SOCRRA on this transition, including FAQs, and what can/cannot be placed in the new bins, click here.
Please note: All household batteries (alkaline, rechargeable, etc.) MUST BE taken to SOCRRA (995 Coolidge in Royal Oak) for proper disposal. Please make sure ends are taped.
