Recycling and Trash Information
Tringali has set the following schedule listed below.
2021 - SOCRRA Schedule of Important Collection Dates
Memorial Day Week - Collection delayed a day
Labor Day Week - Collection delayed a day
YARD WASTE COLLECTION
Yard waste is collected once per week on the same day as trash and recycling. Place yard waste out to curb by 7:00 am on collection day.
Curbside collection is provided from the first Monday in April through the third Friday in December.
When one of the following holidays falls on a weekday, collection for the holiday and the remaining days of that week will be delayed by one day. The holidays are: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.
Winter months (mid-December through March): SOCRRA residents can bring Christmas trees and bags of yard waste to SOCRRA Transfer station free of charge. SOCRRA does not accept yard waste in plastic bags.
The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) takes a very active role in enforcing the ban on the disposal of yard waste (compost) into landfills. As a result, the City of Clawson will only accept yard waste materials during the compost season.
Use Brown Yard Waste Bags or if you use a Yard Waste container they can be no larger than 35 Gallons and designated for yard waste only. Stickers are free and available at the Clawson DPW & City Hall.
For further information call the Clawson DPW 248.288.3222.
