Brenda Stumbo1. Brush/Chipping Collection: The Ypsilanti Township Board of Trustees, at their regular board meeting on May 5, 2020, voted to SUSPEND Brush/Chipping Collection effective June 1, 2020 until further notice.

The Ypsilanti Township Compost Site (2600 East Clark Road) is open Monday - Friday, 8:00am - 4:00pm and Saturday 9:00am - 4:00pm. Our Compost Director and his team are committed to continuing with the service to our residents for drop off at the compost site. Contact Compost Site: (734) 482-6681

 

2. Curbside Services: Waste Management will resume bulk item collection and collection of additional tagged trash bags and cans starting Monday, May 11th.

Please remember only one bulk item is allowed per week. Any additional bulk items (other than the one regularly allowed bulk item) can be scheduled and paid for by any resident by calling Waste Management at (866) 797-9018.

To get additional trash containers and/or bags collected, tags and stickers must be purchased and placed on each additional trash container and/or bag. Tags for additional containers or bags will be $2.00.
Residents may obtain tags and stickers for additional trash by calling Residential Servies: (734) 484 - 0073 and requesting for the stickers/tags to be mailed or arranging an appointment for pick-up at the Civic Center.

Double-Up Trash Collection May 11 - 15th, is postponed until further notice.

 

Waste Management resumed weekly Yard Waste Collection as of Monday, April 20th.

Residents may utilize Yard Waste Collection provided by Waste Management when done properly. Waste Management will pick up your yard waste weekly in paper compost bags. Acceptable items, include grass clippings, vines, leaves, weeds, garden debris, shrubs and brush trimmings less than 2" in diameter. Bundles may be 3' - 4' in length and must be bundled with twine or string. No bundles will be collected over 40 pounds or larger than 18" in diameter.

 

Due to anticipated heavy volumes during the week, some bulk and yard waste stops may not be picked up on the regular service day. Waste Management crews will work to recover the material as quickly thereafter as possible based on crew availability.

 

3. COVID 19 Pop-Up Testing Available: Two pop-up COVID-19 testing locations will be available to residents on Saturday, May 9 from 9:00am - 5:00pm at the Ypsilanti Township Community Center (2025 East Clark Road) and Saturday, May 16 from 9:00am - 5:00pm at the Community Family Life Center (1375 South Harris Road). Drive-up or walk-up testing will be accepted and there is no cost to be tested. Bring your insurance card if you have one, but nobody will be turned away for lack of insurance.

 

4. Green Oaks Golf Course (1775 East Clark Road) is now open for walking golf ONLY per the Governor's Mandate 2020-59. Social distancing requirements are still in effect. Course adjustments have been made including removing bunker rakes and ball washers, the pro shop is closed, and the hole cups have been turned upside down so that nobody touches the flag sticks. Tee time booking and payments should be made online at golfgreenoaks.com or call 734-485-0881.

 

5. Parks and Playgrounds: The Governor's mandate encourages people continue to use outdoor recreation, parks, and to get out and walk. Gated Community Parks that remain open include Ford Lake Park, North Bay Park, Loonfeather Point Park and Hewen's Creek Park along with all of our other neighborhood parks. But please ensure that the physical distancing of six feet is being followed by staying at least six (6) feet apart from one another. You are not to play on playground equipment or play on sport courts. Basketball hoops have been taken down and caution tape is now around our playground equipment. If we continue to have issues with the health advisory of six foot physical distancing and larger gatherings taking place, we will be forced to close our gated community parks. I know this is hard, but Ypsilanti Township residents need to keep doing a great job with staying home and keeping your distance in order to prevent the spread of this terrible disease.

Call the non-emergency number of (734) 994-2911 to report people or children gathering. This is for the safety of our community.

 

6. Poop Scoop Ordinance: We love to see so many people out walking their dogs. Remember that Ypsilanti Township has a "poop scoop ordinance". This applies to parks and subdivisions or any public place. In other words, please pick up after your dogs, its the law. Our parks department is working and making sure garbage in our parks is picked up and they are safe for our residents so they remain a beautiful asset to this community. Please do your part to help keep the parks clean for all to enjoy.

 

 

Please pray or have good thoughts for those who have fallen ill and the families who have have lost their loved ones. Lets all do our part and make sure your nose and mouth are covered when out in public and stay at least six feet apart. Our community has been harder hit in our county with the number of positive testings for the COVID-19 virus. Do your part save your life and the lives of others. We are in this together.
