Residential Recycling


At Delta Disposal, we understand the importance of sustainability. We provide reliable and conscientious curbside collection for single-stream recyclables in Delta County. All recyclable materials are donated to the Delta Wide Recycling program, where they undergo sorting and distribution. Our ongoing collaboration with the Delta Waste Management Authority, EGLE (Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy), and the counties within our service area is focused on developing tailored recycling solutions and expanding accessibility to the recycling program.
