Trash, Recycling and Yard Waste Collection
Garbage collection is done by a private solid waste hauler, Waste Management, and is billed to residents and businesses by the City. Pick up days are as follows (holiday pick up is one day after regular pick up):
City residential — Friday
City commercial — Various days
As part of our contract with Waste Management, each residence is entitled to place one (1) bulk item per week at the curb. This service can be used to dispose of a large appliance, a piece of furniture or other large household items (items with Freon are not accepted).
For trash and recycling collection issues, please contact the City Office at 734-426-8303.
The City has a contract with our solid waste hauler to pick up recyclable items. Recycle bins are available at the City Office at a cost of $5.00 each. Residents can also use a container of their choice. A reycle sticker, which can be obtained at the City Office (8123 Main) is required to be placed on the container. Recyclables are picked up on the same schedule as the garbage collection. Click on the flyer to view all accepted recycling items.
Waste Management will pick up yard waste that is placed in approved paper compost bags or in trash cans marked with an approved sticker, available at the City Office. The bags are available at your local hardware store. Compost is picked up on the same schedule as your garbage collection.
The DPW provides for the collection of brush, branches and leaves. The following guidelines must be followed before your yard waste will be collected:
- All limbs, branches and brush must be stacked neatly at the curb with but-ends facing the same direction. Piles are limited to 10 feet in length. Individual limbs may not exceed 4 inches in diameter at base, 2 inches at leafy end. Limbs smaller than 1 inch must be bagged.
- The DPW will vacuum leaves in the fall. Please make sure that there are no foreign materials in the leaf piles.
- Limbs, branches and brush from complete tree maintenance by a homeowner are the responsibility of the homeowner or their contracted professional.
