About SOCRRA

SOCRRA is a municipal corporation founded in the early '50s. SOCRRA consists of twelve member municipalities with a total population of approximately 283,000 and covers an area of 75 square miles. Member cities are Berkley, Beverly Hills, Birmingham, Clawson, Ferndale, Hazel Park, Huntington Woods, Lathrup Village, Oak Park, Pleasant Ridge, Royal Oak and Troy.

SOCRRA is governed by a twelve member Board of Trustees, one member representing each of the constituent municipalities. Member voting power is based on individual member municipality refuse tonnage delivered to the Authority's facilities.

SOCRRA operates a Transfer Station in Troy (on Coolidge north of 14 Mile) and a compost site in Rochester Hills. The Troy facility receives and compacts the mixed municipal solid waste for transfer to a private landfill for disposal. SOCRRA also operates a Material Recovery Facility (MRF) on Coolidge north of 14 Mile that receives recyclable materials collected at curbside by the member municipalities. These recyclables are delivered to the MRF where the material is weighed and placed on the various processing conveyors for further sorting and baling for shipment to markets. The MRF is designed to process 100 tons per day in an eight hour shift, or 26,000 tons per year.
