Hours of Collection
All items that are acceptable for pick-up according to these rules must be placed at curbside no earlier than 6:00pm on the day before collection and no later than 6:00am on the designated pick up day. Empty containers and/or rejected items must be removed by 6:00am on the day after collection.
Collection on Holidays
Collection operations shall not be performed on the following federal holidays: New Year's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. Where the schedule is interrupted because of a holiday or other factor that causes a delay in the normal collection schedule, the Contractor shall make pick-ups on a schedule of one day late and will return to the regular schedule the following Monday.
Location of Containers for Collection
Residents with curbside service are required to place containers at curbside for collection. Curbside refers to that portion of a dedicated public right-of-way adjacent to paved or traveled roadways (including alleys). All items to be picked up under these rules must be placed alongside a public roadway. Waste Management and the Township will not pick-up from private roads. Containers shall be placed in a manner that will not interfere with or endanger the movement of vehicles or pedestrians. When construction work is being performed in the right-of-way, containers shall be placed as close as practicable to an access point for the collection vehicle. The Contractor shall not be required to pick-up any items that are more than 4' from the edge of the roadway.
Removal of all items as set forth in these rules will be picked up only if they are properly separated and prepared. If material is not properly prepared for removal, Ypsilanti Charter Township or its contracted agent, upon observing a violation of this chapter, may refuse to collect the material. It is then the responsibility of the resident to dispose of the material at his or her own expense within 24 hours. Failure to remove said items from the curb may result in the issuance of a citation per Township ordinances. Exceptions and variances to the above collection and removal rules are available for residents who are physically incapable to place recyclables, yard waste or garbage at curbside and if no other resident of the same household is capable of carrying these items to the curbside for pick-up. The Township Supervisor or the Environmental Services Director, upon written request, with a physician note may authorize an exception or variance in cases of extreme hardship of practical difficulties. In these instances, special arrangements will be made by the Township or its contracted agent to have collection personnel collect materials.
