Welcome to the WWRA

WWRA fsacilityWestern 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.

WWRA shares a location with the City of Chelsea Solid Waste Department at 8025 Werkner Road.  WWRA offers curbside recycling to Chelsea residents weekly and provides drop-off bins on Old Manchester Rd. across from the fairgrounds and also at Vogels Party Store at 20490 M-52.
