GFL Holidays and Yard Waste Reminders

GFL will continue to collect yard waste through the 2nd full week in December which is December 12-16 this year. All waste must be at the curb in approved containers by 7 a.m. on your collection day.  Please remember that if a holiday falls on a weekday, your scheduled service day will be delayed by one day and does include Saturday collection.  The only remaining holiday in the calendar year 2022 that will change collection dates is Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 24th. If your collection day is usually Thursday, GFL will collect on Friday, and if your collection day is usually Friday, GFL will collect on Saturday.  Christmas falls on a Sunday this year, so the collection will not be moved for Christmas this year. 


Holiday Office Closings

Waterford Township administrative offices will be closed on November 11th for Veterans’ Day, and November 24th & 25th for Thanksgiving.  

The Waterford Township Public Library will be closed Saturday, November 12 for Veterans Day, and Thursday, November 24th for Thanksgiving.

Emergency services remain available during these administrative closures.

On behalf of all of us here on Team Waterford, we wish you a safe, happy, and healthy holiday season.
