Western Washtenaw Recycling Authority
Public Works, under Michigan Public Act 185, can help local communities address their infrastructure needs by providing communities with the financial and technical assistance needed to construct wastewater, water supply, and solid waste projects as well as establishing lake management projects.
The Western Washtenaw Recycling Authority (WWRA) is a Non Profit Public Recycling Program that was formed in 1991 with a State Grant to help Protect Michigan's Future by local residents. This Grant helped finance the construction of the 4200 square foot facility located at 8025 Werkner Road in Chelsea Michigan.
The WWRA is subsidized by a group of five local communities that work cooperatively to implement residential recycling programs in the Townships of Dexter, Lyndon, Manchester and Lima, and the the City of Chelsea. The townships are served by convenient drop-off centers while the City of Chelsea have weekly Curbside Recycling pick up.
