Welcome to Kalamazoo Charter Township!

The mission of Kalamazoo Township is to provide government services that promote a safe, healthy, accessible, and economically viable community to live, work, learn, and play.

Kalamazoo Township wraps around three sides of the City of Kalamazoo, offering equally easy access to all the urban amenities and more rural activities. The Township is made up of four neighborhoods, each with a strong sense of community and history. They contain a broad range of housing stock, thriving locally owned businesses, and commercial and industrial areas available for development. All parts of the Township have access to broadband internet, curbside recycling, and municipal sewer and water. Families in the township have access to several quality school choices, including Kalamazoo Public Schools and the nationally known Kalamazoo Promise Scholarship. Anywhere in the Township residents are short minutes away from highly rated medical facilities and universities as well as parks, golf courses, tennis courts and bike trails. If you’re looking for a place to raise a family, live close to work and play or start a business, please join us in Kalamazoo Township.

Red Med Box

Have you ever wondered what to do with unused or expired medication? Whatever you do, don't flush them down the toilet. Instead, dispose of those items at a Red Med Box.

Red Med Boxes are located at certain area law enforcement buildings, including at the Kalamazoo Township Police Department. Red Med Box is an easy and secure way to dispose of your unused or expired medication.

Message Regarding Single Hauler

 As was stated in our last newsletter, Charter Township of Kalamazoo is exploring the option of a single hauler for trash and yard waste. We asked for responses from our residents and the vast majority were positive. The main concerns that were expressed by those with reservations were that it remain competitive, that there continue to be choices in container size and services offered such as yard waste pick up and that costs would not go up. Residents would continue to work directly with the hauler regarding service and the payment of bills.  These are all considerations that will be included in the request for proposals that will go out to the waste haulers servicing this area. If these criteria cannot be met the township will not go forward with the proposal.

By having a single hauler the company chosen can set up the most efficient route for their pickups, eliminating the need for three different trucks driving through the neighborhood, making frequent stops, on three different days. This will protect our investment in our roads and reduce noise and air pollution in our residential neighborhoods.

The township would like your continued input on this process. Please contact the township to let us know what you think and what you are currently paying for your waste hauling services.

You can call Supervisor Ronald Reid at 381-8080 or send email to supervisor@ktwp.org
