The city has contracted with GFL (Green for Life) Services, to handle weekly refuse collection. To determine your regular pickup day, contact the DPW at (586) 293-2001.
When holidays occur during a regular work week, refuse will be collected one day after your usual pickup day. The holidays upon which GFL Services does not pick up are as follows: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
Large items (appliances, furniture, etc.) will be picked upon your regularly scheduled pickup day. There is no need to call the office to make special arrangements for disposal of these items. Be aware that the truck may not pick up the item on its first trip down your block; but will return for the item later in the day.
Should you experience any problem with your refuse pickup, you may contact GFL Services directly at (866) 772-8900
