MMWA News & Notes

Recycling – Have you outgrown your recycling bin? Residents may now use a 45-gallon or smaller can with handles, labeled with a “recyclables only” sticker. Cans not only hold more recyclables than bins, they help prevent blowing litter. You provide the can, we’ll provide the stickers! Contact MMWA or your local municipal office for stickers. Recycling is easier than ever now that you do not need to sort your recyclables - all plastic, metal, glass & paper can go into one container.

Holiday light recycling drive - MMWA’s holiday light recycling drive will run from Nov 15, 2017, to Jan 15, 2018. Please visit our website for drop-off locations and other program details or call us at (989) 781-9555.

Questions? Call us! If you need to report a missed pick-up or other service issue, please call us at (989) 781-9555 before 5 pm the day after your service day. Remember, trucks start collecting at 7 am. Routes can change for many reasons, so your collection time may vary, which means all materials should be at the curb by 7 am.

HSW program will return in 2018 - We wrapped up our successful 2017 hazardous waste, paint, & electronics collection program in September. If you have these materials, please hold onto them until the program returns in Spring 2018. Call us or visit our website in mid-April for the 2018 schedule and other program details.

Inclement weather - Winter is just around the corner and with winter comes icy and snowy roads. Roads that are found to be impassable when a truck goes by will not have collection service reattempts until your next regular service day the following week. In the event that collection is canceled in the entire township, MMWA will alert residents via its website, Facebook page & televised notices on the following television stations: NBC25, WEYI25, & FOX66.
