Why are West Bloomfield residents required to use GFL for Curbside Collection?
* Because solid waste collection directly affects public health, safety and welfare, the
   Township has determined that the curbside collection and disposal of solid waste from
   residential properties shall be undertaken by the Township through contract with a single 
   licensed designated solid waste hauler. Currently, GFL has a contract through March 2020.

* The primary purpose for the single hauler is to prevent greater deterioration of our
   crumbling roads, at a time when there is no approved road funding plan in Lansing. 

* Residents are receiving a highly competitive fixed rate and free recycling services.

Realtors/Title Companies
Delinquent waste hauling charges may be added to tax bills for collection purposes. To determine if there are current waste hauling charges please contact GFL-USA Environmental Services at: (844)-464-3587
