Waste Hauling, Curbside Recycling & Compost

Choosing a Waste Hauler

Each household or business is responsible for contracting services as required by Ordinance.  The Township does not have a sanitation department, nor do we utilize tax money to pay for this service.  All programs are run by private companies that are not endorsed or controlled by Waterford Township.

Township Recycling

On the 1st Saturday of each month, a container is located in front of Township Hall for the collection of corrugated cardboard, magazines, and paper board (e.g. cereal boxes, toothpaste boxes, generally most food and personal product packaging. Must be free of food debris and dry.) Collection is from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.. If an official holiday falls on the 1st Saturday of the month, collection will not occur and will resume according to the established schedule. Residents only. No commercial haulers allowed.

Recreation Center Building Recycling

The Recreation Center Building at 5640 Williams Lake Road has a recycle bin in its parking lot to collect newspapers, magazines, catalogs, office paper, shredded paper (bagged) and junk mail. Proceeds are based on paper weight collected per month and allotted to the Recreation Center Building Enhancement Fund for the Golden Age Club.

Document Shredding

Absolute Shreds and the Oakland County Sheriff's Office offer document shredding options.  In addition, the Waterford Township Treasurer sponsors periodic events at Township Hall for Waterford residents.
