Single Hauler: GFL

Our Garbage/Recycling Collection day is on Tuesdays

Orion Township has awarded the solid waste, recycling, and yard waste collection contract to Green for Life Environmental (GFL) for five years (starting January 2, 2020). This program will include weekly curbside recycling with a recycling incentive program, weekly bulky item collection, unlimited yard waste collection April 1 - December 15, and improved customer service.

**Beginning in February, until the end of March, if you find your cart size is not working for you, you may exchange it for a different size at no cost. After March, there will be a $100 fee charged to exchange cart sizes.

Please Read Carefully

In an effort to keep Orion Township neat and clean, residents must place all of their garbage and recycling materials in the appropriate rolling cart.

The carts will be assigned to each individual property, and will have a serial number that will be coded to each address upon delivery. Residents may not refuse delivery or return carts. Carts will be the property of Orion Township and must remain at the property.

Additional carts are available for a one-time fee if you find you are consistently overfilling your cart(s).

95- gallon carts are $85, 64-gallon carts are $75.

Your quarterly/annual rate will remain the same regardless of how many carts you place out.

Billing Information

GFL will bill residents directly for service on a quarterly basis.

Residents will be billed two weeks prior to each new service period. To be sure your payment is received by the due date, please allow 7-10 days for processing. For your convenience, auto-pay options are available.
