“Detroit Greencycle, a business, owned and operated in Corktown, created solely to take your stuff to the recycling center and you compost to local gardens. And we do this in a zero emission way: we bike it there. That’s right. Come rain, shine, sleet, or snow, we will tie a flatbed to a bike, bike to your house, get your stuff, and then head up Trumbull. We do it for a modest fee. We do it with regularity. And we do it with a smile.”
