Color Logo Charter Township of Ypsilanti A Community of Opportunity

Civic Center w Address

This Ordinance is intended to safeguard the health, safety and welfare of all persons who use collection boxes within the Ypsilanti Township. The intent of this Collection Boxes Ordinance is to regulate outdoor collection boxes in the Township so that they are clean and safe; establish standards for their size and location so they do not create hazards to pedestrians or vehicular traffic; and to prohibit their location in residential areas.

It shall be unlawful for any person to deposit, store, keep or maintain or to permit to be deposited, stored, kept or maintained a collection box on any real property without first obtaining an annual permit issued by the Department. A permit is required for each collection box.

Application for permits required by this ordinance shall be upon forms provided by the Department which shall be signed by an individual who is an officer, director, or member of the entity seeking a permit.
