March 30, 2020. A 5-year contract was awarded to GFL Environmental USA, Inc. for service commencing March 30, 2020.
The new single source residential curbside waste hauler changes impact all single residential homes in Waterford Township. Locations with dumpster collection and commercial properties will continue to contract their own services.
No, you may continue to utilize your own trash hauler until the transition takes place. Prior to March 30, 2020, each household is responsible for individually contracting these services as required by Township Ordinance with the hauler of their choice.
Services by a waste hauler that applies for a Township waste hauler license by February 14, 2020, and obtains that license by March 30, 2020, that were paid for prior to June 10, 2019, may continue through the documented date the services were paid for, or June 10, 2020, whichever is earlier. (See Sections 9-062(c)(5), 10-275, and 10-276 of the Township Ordinance Code for details on this limited exclusion from the obligation to use the single source hauler.)
If your association has authority to contract for all homes in the condominium or subdivision, GFL is required to allow the association to do that under the single hauler program.
The simple answer is no, there is no option to completely opt out of the single designated waste hauler program in Waterford Township beginning March 30, 2020. The single hauler program was put in place by a Township ordinance that applies to all single family residential curbside collection homes within Waterford Township.
Yes. The contract calls for customers to receive a 95-gallon rolling cart for solid waste and 65-gallon rolling cart for recycling. Customers will have a limited right to request and receive a different size cart for either purpose at no charge.
Carts will not be provided for yard waste, which must be placed in biodegradable brown bags or a customer container clearly identified as yard waste.If needed, additional carts will be available for purchase.
While the transition is taking place, updates, instructions and information will be shared in the places mentioned on the front side of this flyer.
