Waste Removal Solutions (Residential)

Residential Trash Collection is contracted through Republic Services of Manistee. At this time, the Township does not provide waste collection services for businesses. 

Monday is collection day for trash and recycling. Tuesday is collection day for yard waste, April thru November. Please note that different trucks will be used for the various collections. If either one falls on a Federal Holiday it will be picked up the following day. Republic observes the following major holidays and will be closed:

New Year's Day
Memorial Day
Fourth of July
Labor Day
Thanksgiving Day
Christmas Day

Holiday Recycling Simplified

Each household is allowed three 30-gallon bags per week.  Additional tags are also available at the township.

Extra Bag tags @ $1.50 for each bag over the 3 bag limit

Bulky item tags @ $3.00 each. This includes: large furniture, storm doors and windows, toilets, sinks, railroad ties, fence post, bed springs, metal furniture, bathtubs, carpet and pad, fencing (not to exceed 3’ x 4’). 

Appliance without Freon @ $15.00 each. This includes: stove, dryer, furnace, water heater, washer, dishwasher, humidifier, and microwave.

Appliance with Freon @ $40.00. This includes: refrigerator, air conditioner, freezer, and dehumidifier. 

Yard waste containers are available for an annual charge of $65. These containers can be ordered at the town hall, and yearly stickers are available there each spring. Yard waste is picked up at the curb on Tuesdays. This service runs from April thru November, weather permitting. 

Recycling bins are available for your use, and will be collected the same day as trash. 

Spring Clean-up Day – Every spring, usually on the second Saturday in May, residents may put out a variety of items to be picked up for this once-a-year special clean up. Please see the ads in the Ludington Daily News, or posted at the town hall for items Republic will not accept, and for those which require purchase of a special tag.

Christmas TreesAnother annual bonus for Township residents is the disposal of Christmas trees. During the month of January Republic will collect discarded trees from residences. Just set the tree out with your regular trash on Mondays, and keep the tree free of heavy snow build up.
