WM Contract & 96-Gal Toter Cart FAQs

Color Logo Charter Township of Ypsilanti A Community of Opportunity

Civic Center w Address

Effective October 1st, 2020 our contract with Waste Management has changed. Ypsilanti Township put this entire process through an extensive bidding process that spanned much of the 2020 year. We have been with Waste Management for over 20 years and felt it was important to go out to bid. We received six competitive bids and Waste Management was found to be the best option for the Township. The toter carts were included in the contract because Waste Management operates single staffed, compressed natural gas, grapple trucks that grab the carts. Residents in single family homes have been issued a 96-gallon trash toter cart to replace the three 32-gallon trash cans you may have used in the past.
