Household Trash, Recycling & Large or Bulky Item Pickup

Curbside household trash, recycling collection and large or bulky item collection services are provided for the Township through a contract with a private waste hauler, GFL. Collection is performed on different days of the week for different areas.  Please make sure that your household trash is placed at the road no earlier than 6:00 p.m. the night before or no later than 6:00 am on the morning of your collection day. Trash must be in a watertight trash can (with lid & 2 handles) or in a tied trash bag. Residents must supply their own cans or bags and they may not exceed a 35 gallon capacity nor weigh more than 45 pounds when filled. Anything placed in 95 gallon wheeled carts or in cans without handles on the outside will not be picked up.  Trash, recycling and yard waste in cardboard boxes is not acceptable. All cans and recycling bins must be set adjacent to the street (next to the driveway but not in the street).  After your cans are emptied they must be removed from the curb by evening of the collection day.

Large or Bulky Items:  As part of our current waste hauling contract (July 1, 2012 thru June 30, 2017) GFL will collect along with your weekly trash two (2) large or bulky items per week.  These items include furniture, carpet, mattresses, and other similar household items.  Anything over the two (2) item limit will not be picked up and you may not leave them at the road until the following week or you may receive a ticket from the Ordinance Department.  If you have additional questions as to whether a particular item is acceptable please contact the Customer Services office for GFL at 844-464-3587. 

Do not place the following items in with your household trash, as they are not acceptable: chemicals, fertilizers, oil, gasoline, gas cans, disposable LP gas tanks, auto parts or tires, construction materials, contractor's debris, concrete or rocks, bricks, dirt, sod, bales of hay, liquid solvents, glues, car batteries, or paints. Only latex paint is allowed to be placed in with your household trash but it must be completely dried out.  Click here to view a "Resource Recovery Guide" published by Wayne County Public Services with information on ways to dispose of or recycle some of these unacceptable items.

Holiday Collection Schedule: Residents should be aware that collection will not be made on the legal holidays noted below only when they occur on a weekday (Monday thru Friday). When one of these holidays occurs on a weekday collection for the remaining days of that week only will be delayed by one (1) day, which means collection for Friday areas will be made on Saturday.

Curbside Recycling:  Redford Township encourages all residents to recycle and help reduce the volume of trash that goes into landfills and hold costs down.  Weekly recycling roadside collection takes place the same day that your regular household trash is picked up.  Remember to make sure the bin is in clear view for the driver to see or it may not be emptied.
