Trash/Recycle Collection Changes

April 1, 2013

The Village recently renewed our contract with Waste Management for trash/recycle/compost collection. The contract was renewed with no increase in year one, a 1% increase in year 2 and a 2% increase in year 3. Below is a summary of a few changes that were made with the renewal:

Recycling can now be placed in a container of the resident's choice. If you choose a container other than a green recycle bin it needs to be marked with a sticker, which can be picked up at the Village Offices (8123 Main) or requested via mail by sending an e-mail to cnicholls@dextermi.gov or calling 734-426-8303 x17.

Each residence can now put out one bulk item per week. No special arraignments are necessary.

Residents are encouraged to bundle their brush so that it can be hauled away by Waste Management. If you are unable to bundle the brush or have branches larger than 4" in diameter please contact the Village Office (734-426-8303) so it can be picked up by the Department of Public Works. Brush/compost pick-up by Waste Management will begin April 5.

A flyer with more information will be mailed to all residences the week of April 1. It can also be viewed on the website at - http://dextermi.gov/trash-recycling-and-yard-waste-collection
