Welcome to the WWRA!

Western Washtenaw Recycling Authority (WWRA) is a partnership of five municipalities working together to find alternative ways to handle waste and promote recycling. WWRA operates independently of the City of Chelsea and is funded by 2 assessments that appear on the Winter Tax bill. One assessment for paying the bond used to buy the new equipment and the other is an operational assessment.

What can I recycle?

WWRA offers weekly curbside recycling to Chelsea residents and provides convenient drop-off bins throughout our entire service area. REMINDER: We cannot recycle plastic bags. Thank you for your cooperation! Click here to view our complete list of what can be recycled at the WWRA.
