Waste Management Services
Waste Management Services (WMS) is responsible for the collection and disposal of all non-hazardous waste and recyclable materials on the University's Ann Arbor campus. WMS does not service the main Hospital complexes. WMS collects and recycles the following materials: pallets, scrap metal, rigid polystyrene, hardcover books, food waste/compost, and student donations during move-out. In addition, WMS provides street sweeping, excavating services, and roll-off dumpsters.
The Waste Management staff are experts in their field with the goal of being the waste and recycling service provider of choice to the University community. Our staff are equipped with four 40 yard compactor trucks, one 25 cubic yard rear load compactor truck, one roll-off truck, and a variety of other utility vehicles.
