Solid Waste, Recycling, and Compost
For missed pickup, to request a new trash can or trash can repair, and additional questions, please visit GFL Environmental, Inc. at their website or contact them directly at 888-877-4996 or 844-464-3587
Yard waste is collected weekly the same day as your scheduled household refuse, from the first Monday in April to early December, depending on weather conditions.
**If you missed the GFL yard waste collection date cutoff, no worried! Yard waste is still being accepted at the DPS faciltiy at 500 Southfield Rd. **
Even though the city does not offer recycling at this present time, luckily Wayne County and the State of Michigan's Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) can both fill the void on this topic.
A list of facilities that accept Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) year-round and for information on non-toxic alternatives, refer to the Wayne County Resource Recovery Guide.
