The City of Gibraltar has implemented a voluntary recycling drop off center located at Gibraltar City Hall. Funding for the recycling drop off center comes from a dedicated solid waste millage the City levies. This millage also covers the expense associated with residential trash removal and disposal services. The recycling material receptacle at this point is emptied on Mondays & Fridays.

Please refer to the following information on disposal rules and regulations. Should you have any questions regarding recycling service at the City of Gibraltar, please contact the City of Gibraltar at 734-676-3900.
