Recycling Tips

Recycling over 700 million pounds per year.

Recycling LessonRizzo Environmental Services uses Single Stream Recycling trucks to collect the recycling products left in front of each homeowner’s site. We also have custom recycling programs for any size business including scrap paper, cardboard, plastic, metal and electronics recycling.

Rizzo currently collects and recycles over 700,000,000 pounds of recycled products a year. We have strived to dramatically increase recycling participation in each of Rizzo's communities. The big advantage of Single Stream Recycling is the direct reduction in collection costs and an increased efficiency in the sorting process. The increased participation and efficiency reduces the dependence on landfills.

Rizzo is the largest private hauler in S.E. Michigan. With over 50 years of operating experience, Rizzo has been able to fully develop its recycling programs beyond most programs in our area. Because Rizzo isn't a landfill owner, unlike its competitors who must fill their landfills, Rizzo is fully dedicated to the recycling programs that will benefit us all during our lifetime.

In 2013 Rizzo Environmental Services bought the Royal Oak Recycling firm to increase the capacity and ability to recycle. ROR has over 80 years of experience, is family owned like Rizzo, and serves not just Michigan but also has many world-wide accounts. In 2015 we added NPR Recycling, Romulus, MI and Cereal City Recycling, Battle Creek, MI under the name of Royal Oak Recycling.

This powerhouse Rizzo-Royal Team can customize a recycling program to fit any business’s needs for most material or manufacturing waste. In certain situations you may be able to earn payments for your recyclables. Just ask us how. Call Rizzo’s Royal Oak Recycling at 248-541-4020.
