Trash, recyclables, and yard waste are collected on the same day.

All materials must be placed at the curb by 7:00 am on your designated trash day. Materials that are not at the curb when collection vehicles go by will not be picked up that week. Residents should leave space between trash, recyclable, and yard waste containers so that the collection crews can properly identify and pick up materials easier and faster.

When a major holiday falls on a weekday, collection days will be delayed by one day.

For example, if Christmas Day is on a Wednesday, collection services for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will be delayed one day. Holidays that fall on a Saturday or Sunday do NOT delay collection services. Mid Michigan Waste Authority’s observed holidays are: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
