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.

* Must be curbside by 7:00 am
* Must be along with solid waste 
* Metal, glass, or plastic materials shall be rinsed and cleaned
* Recyclables shall be site-separated from other waste , and stored in a "Recycling"
* Newspapers/Paper can be placed in paper bags or tied in bundles not more than
   50 pounds each.
