2020 Trash/Recycling Rates & Pickup Reminders

In order to keep the edges of the new roads from breaking up and the curbs in subdivisions from being disturbed, the Bay County Road Commission has asked that you please put your trash carts, yard waste, and recycle containers in front of the curb on the asphalt in subdivisions.  On the local roads, put the containers at least halfway onto the asphalt.   

Rates for our monthly trash, recycling and yard waste increased this year.  The Township Board requested bids from multiple vendors but only received one bid as the others declined to participate.  This increase is not unique to our Township.  There is currently a nationwide problem with disposing of recyclable material which subsequently caused the most significant increase in cost for waste services.  Waste Management`s number is (800)-796-9696

 Yard Waste pickup is from April 1st through November 30th each year.

 Yard Waste Pickup is the day after your trash.

 There is no limit on the number of yard waste barrels or bags.

 Please No Plastic Bags and Barrels Must Be Less than 50lbs.
