Annual passes for Recycle Ann Arbor’s Drop-Off Station, located at 2950 E. Ellsworth (just west of Platt Rd), go on sale starting Tuesday, December 9th. Although not a new service, Recycle Ann Arbor feels it is important to remind the community of the many options available so they may pick the most cost-effective one for their needs.
Annual passes exempt the customer from the Drop-Off Station’s entrance fee until December 31st, 2015. Additionally, holders get a 5% discount on waste fees if they have an annual pass. An annual pass for residents and businesses is $75.00 for the year. For those businesses that do high volume recycling at the site the price is $150.00.
For customers that don’t visit frequently enough to gain value from the annual pass, Recycle Ann Arbor provides a 10-visit punch pass. This pass has no expiration date and is good for 10 visits. The pass costs $25.00 for residents and businesses. However, for businesses that do high volume recycling at the site the price is $100.00.
For customers that visit less frequently, the entry fee is still $3.00 for residents and businesses. For those businesses that do high volume recycling at the site the entry fee is $12.00.
