Riverview Land Preserve’s Hours of Operation   VIEW HOURS

News & Events

Riverview Land Preserve is an important resource to our neighboring communities and the community at large. Annually, the landfill generates millions of dollars in fees to support Wayne County recycling programs and local enrichment programs.

RLP is an educational resource for school districts, universities and civic groups. We are proud of the fact that our facility serves as a classroom. School fieldtrips, STEM projects, visits from local Boy Scout Troops, and more help our youth learn first-hand about the importance of recycling at home and the role of landfills when it comes to managing waste.

RLP operates with transparency to the community. RLP staff meets regularly with city, business and community leaders, and regularly shares Local Enforcement Agency findings to the community.

Put simply: We are proud of our role in the Downriver community, and we look forward to deepening relationships and supporting local community initiatives.
