A separate truck picks up large metal items such as appliances, hot water tanks, etc. for recycling on the same day as your regular refuse collection. Items must be at your curb by 7:00 a.m. on refuse day. Please separate these items from your regular refuse by 2 - 3 feet. Refrigerator and freezer doors must be removed for safety reasons due to state law (just place to side). If you live on a cul-de-sac, dead-end or if you live in an apartment/condo complex the Department of Public Service office should be notified the day prior to your refuse collection by calling 248) 246-3300. Thank you.
