As part of its ever-expanding Mission:Green initiative, the City of Westland provides a permanent collection site for area residents, businesses and schools to drop off old electronics.  The drop-off site is located at the Westland Recycling Center at 37137 Marquette.  Items to be collected include Covered Electronic Devices (CEDs) such as computers, monitors, televisions and printers, Eligible Electronic devices (EEDs) such as mobile telephones, computer cables, mouse or keyboards, fax machines, MP3 players, PDF’s, video game consoles, VCR and DVD players, zip drives, scanners, and other devices such as microwaves, telephones, stereos, radios and small household appliances.  No large appliances can be accepted such as air conditioners, stoves, refrigerators, etc. and please no hazardous waste or items containing mercury.   While you’re at the recycling center you will notice that the center has now gone single-stream like our award winning curbside recycling program. Everything gets put into the compactor at the west side of the site unless collection is posted otherwise.

We make it easy to be green here in Westland!!!    BE ADVISED THAT DUE TO INCREASES IN COMMODITIES PRICING WE ARE TEMPORARILY NOT ACCEPTING E-WASTE AT THIS TIME.  SORRY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE THIS MAY CAUSE.  ITEMS THAT YOU WOULD NORMALLY RECYCEL IN THIS MANNER CAN BE DISPOSSED OF AT THE HAZARDOUS WASTE DISPOSAL DAYS THIS SPRING AND SUMMER.

There are many ways that Westland citizens can work toward a sustainable future for our community.  One of the more exciting ways is to become a healthy city; or in the case of Mayor Wild’s new program, Passport to a Healthy City,  perhaps the healthiest City in America.
 
This new campaign is designed to promote healthy, active lifestyles for all of Westland’s residents through the development of fun, convenient programs created from a strong public/private partnership. 
Here’s the challenge, Obtain a Passport to a Healthy City.  Complete a program, attend an event or participate in an eligible activity which are available online at http://www.cityofwestland.com/healthy-passport Once you have completed a program or activity get your passport stamped.  Try to fill your passport and… have fun. Earn prizes, discounts and coupon and then… do it all over again. 
Let’s all work together for a healthier Westland and let’s make Westland the Healthiest City in America.
