|YARD WASTE DEADLINE EXTENSION
Due to the unseasonably warm weather earlier this fall, yard waste collection has been extended an additional week. Residents on the city-wide Waste Management contract can continue to place their yard waste at the curb until Friday, December 1. Yard waste collection will not start again until the first Monday in April.
In addition to Trash Collection, the following services are included:
Liquid waste (gasoline & automobile oil)
Wet paint cans (let paint dry and place at curb with lid off)
Car and truck parts/engines/tires
Yard waste mix with rubbish
Waste Management will also be collecting recyclables at the same time. Waste Management will collect recycling from the 64-gallon recycling cart provided to each residence. Please place only recyclable items into this cart as they are delivered to sorting facilities and end-market recyclers. Novi’s recycling partner is the Resource Recovery and Recycling Authority of Southwest Oakland County (RRRASOC). Visit the RRRASOC website for additional Curbside Recycling Information.
