Recycling & Waste Program

Kalamazoo Township coordinates competitive contracts for the following collection services.

Recycling, bulk trash, seasonal leaf and brush pickup, and access to hazardous waste drop-off site are funded by a special assessment. 

Any missed bulk or recycling pickups should be reported to the Township before the end of the next business day.

For weekly garbage pick up (or optional, weekly yard waste pick up), residents pay Republic Service.


Curbside Pick up occurs every-other-week for 1-4-uni housing structures and some condominiums, using a wheeled cart.  No sorting is required
