Garbage Collection

Great American Disposal is our contracted service provider in the Township. You can reach them at 906/387-2646.

Now that the winter season has arrived and the snowplows are out, please pay particular attention to placement of tipper carts curb side and bring them up into your property after trash is picked up to avoid snow plow damage. Please call GAD directly at 906-387- 2646 if additional carts need to be purchased.

The Township is not responsible for lost or damaged containers due to weather conditions

Each resident is responsible for the proper care and security of the trash tipper carts. Waste placed outside the tipper carts either loose or bagged, will be left curb side and not picked up. All trash inside tipper carts MUST be bagged.
