Zero Waste Detroit supports the City of Detroit's Department of Public Works by providing recycling education for residents. You can request a free curbside recycling education workshop from Zero Waste Detroit—participants receive a free recycling cart for attending.

Detroit's recycling program is free but voluntary, so Zero Waste Detroit’s creates outreach workshops in neighborhoods that reach residents who do not ordinarily go to organized community meetings.
