The Drop-off Center is located at 995 Coolidge, Troy, MI (between 14 Mile and Maple).

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, SOCRRA's Recycling Drop-off Center will be accessible by appointment blocks only to drop-off any acceptable material including recyclables, use of the paper shredder, household hazardous waste, and electronics recycling. Drop-off Center hours are 8:00 AM to 3:00 PM, Monday through Friday. Appointments can be made via SOCRRA's website at www.socrra.org.
