Residents facing financial hardship can now use one form to apply for any or all of the above. The Assessor's Office will administer this program.

Large Item Collection
Large items (furniture and appliances) are collected on a weekly basis. They must be out at the curb by 7:00 AM on your collection day. This service is part of the trash program.
For collection of Freon containing appliances (refrigerator, freezer or air conditioner), please notify Priority Waste the day before pick-up. Refrigerator and freezer doors must be removed. A separate truck collects these appliances for removal of the Freon. This service is part of the trash program.
Medical Sharps Collection
If your doctor prescribes home treatments requiring the use of syringes with disposable needles or lancets (commonly referred to as medical sharps), you can dispose of them through a specialized service. Used and discarded needles should be placed in a specified sharps container which are available at most pharmacies or any puncture proof container, such as an empty detergent bottle or coffee can that is taped shut.
When ready to discard, containers should be clearly visible and market MEDICAL SHARPS. PLEASE DO NOT PLACE LOOSE NEEDLES IN YOUR TRASH!
Yard Waste Collection
Collection begins the week in which March 15 falls and runs through December 22, 2023.
During the yard waste season, Priority Waste will collect all properly prepared yard waste on your regular trash service day. We encourage you to use large, brown paper yard waste bags which are available at your local hardware store. Or, you may call the Township at 248-594-2800 or Priority Waste at 855-927-8365 to get a "Compost" sticker to put on your 35 gallon can. Use of plastic bags is prohibited as is the mixing of yard waste with your regular trash.
For more information see our Yard Waste Collection page
Township residents can now use trash containers of 35-gallon, 65-gallon or 95-gallon. Residents may purchase (recommended) a 95-gallon container from Priority Waste for $110 plus a $15 delivery fee. Purchased containers will be warrantied by Priority. Residents may also choose to continue using or purchase their own trash containers.
