DTE Appliance Recycling Program

In August 2009, DTE Energy began dismantling more than 1,000 old refrigerators turned in by Detroit Edison customers as part of the Your Energy Saving'sSM Appliance Recycling program the company launched in June. The appliances are being dismantled at a newly opened state-of-the-art recycling plant in Livonia.

The Appliance Recycling program offers Detroit Edison customers $50 for their older model refrigerators and freezers and hauls them away for free.

 The City of Northville, Northville DDA, Northville Parks and Recreation Department, City of Novi, Charter Township of Northville, Hines Park (Wayne County Parks) and Maybury Park (Michigan Department of Natural Resources) collaboratively embarked on the development of a physical connection between Hines and Maybury called “The Link”.

Developing a comprehensive bicycle and pedestrian wayfinding program to assist users in navigating “The Link” was paramount.
