Weight Restriction and Garbage Collection


This year the Road Commission has granted our solid waste collection contractor permission to continue to pull the trailers for the recycling, but only during night time hours when road bases are usually frozen. To comply with this restriction, Great American Disposal has been granted permission by the Township to change collection hours during weight restrictions.

Effective the week of March 31, Great American Disposal plans to start collection on the current routes at 3:00 AM and be completed before morning thaws occur. The collection days would not change, but residents would need to place their garbage and recyclables roadside on the evening before their regular collection day until restrictions are lifted.

The Road Commission will be implementing road restrictions in Marquette County beginning on Saturday, March 29 at 8:00 AM.  You can visit the County Road Commission of Michigan website for daily updates by county:
