Special Item Removal
The Department of Public Works offers two methods of removal for special items that our refuse contractor will not take. You can call the Department of Public Works at 248-651-5165 to get an estimate of cost, or you will be given the option to have a dump truck parked at your residence overnight for you to load (dial-a-dump).
The current cost is $50 for a three-yard dump truck (approximately 1.5 to 2 times a pickup load). Payment is required at the time of reservation and is non-refundable. This service cannot be used for contracted work, or for the disposal of any paints, hazardous wastes, or tires. This program operates on a first-come, first-served basis and the truck must be reserved in person at City Hall.
Items containing Freon (air conditioning units, refrigerators, freezers, dehumidifiers, etc.) will require an additional charge for disposal. The current cost for Freon items is $35 when placed for curbside pickup, or $29 when they are dropped off at the Department of Public Works yard or placed in one of the dump truck rentals.
