Brick + Beam Detroit

Is there a public dump where I can drop off materials to be throw away?

Nearer to Mexicantown. Thanks!

Check out the answer to this question and see if Budget Dumpster would be helpful for you:

I don't know of public dumps, but I would recommend if you have any materials like windows, bricks, doors, wood, etc. that you let one of the architectural salvage shops know so they can maybe take some of it. Also, you might try Matt Naimi at Recycle Here to see if they have recommendations for dumps/recycle locations.

Habitat For Humanity's ReStore in Detroit also has deconstruction services if that helps:

The City of Detroit has several bulk waste drop-off sites around the city. It is free for residents to dump up to one ton per day. The drop off sites also have some recycling containers. You will need to take your ID or driver's license that shows city residency.
