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 two assessments that appear on the Winter Tax bill. One assessment is for paying the bond used to buy new equipment and the other is an operational assessment.
What can I recycle (and NOT 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!

WWRA shares a location with the City of Chelsea Solid Waste Department at 8025 Werkner Road.
Please note that the WWRA is a separate entity from the "transfer station/dump" and we have separate hours, access, etc.
