January 22, 2019 The Big Red Barrel Project is coming to Genoa Township Hall

According to the Michigan Department of Education, nearly 13 percent of Livingston County youths have abused prescription drugs and painkillers in the past 30 days, a rate higher than the national average.  The FDA has recently released a study on the harmful effects of medications that are flushed or dumped into the environment.  The Red Barrel project is designed to combat both these issues by collecting and disposing of unused medications in your bathroom cabinet.

Genoa Township is joining in the fight to save our kids and the environment.  The Big Red Barrel drug take back program will be available at the Township Hall on April 27th of 2019 from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

Controlled substances and all other solid dosage medications are accepted with no questions asked.   Please don’t bring your pill containers or other identifying information like labels.  Identification is not required and there is no cost for the disposal.

  • Please bring a plastic bag filled with all your outdated and/or unused medication. 
  • Liquid medication will be accepted if stuffed into a ziplock bag with enough paper towels to absorb all the liquid.  Please use separate bags for each liquid medication.
  • NO inhalers

The Drain Commissioner's office will also be on-site to collect sharps and needles for this ONE TIME ONLY opportunity.

  • Sharp collection is open to residents. Businesses and medical facilities are not allowed to dispose of sharps at this event.
  • Sharps need to be in a heavy plastic container {i.e. Red "Sharp" Box or empty plastic laundry detergent jug sealed with tape

November 13, 2018 Township Refuse and Recycling Changes

Recycling pickup began the week of 11/5/18.  Please make sure you place your carts within 3’ of the curb and please allow enough distance between the carts to allow clearance for the automated truck. 

The Advanced Disposal Mobile App is now live.  Android users can click HERE, Apple/iOS users HERE

The Advanced Disposal Widget is now live.  Please visit our refuse page at https://genoa.org/departments/utilities/refuse to try it out.

How will this affect you:

Transition:  If you currently rent a cart you will no longer need to subscribe and pay for the carts separately.  Advanced Disposal uses automated single operated trucks which require the use of their carts by all customers. One 96 gallon refuse cart and one 64 gallon recycling cart were delivered between 10/15/18-10/26/18. 

All GFL, Rizzo, Duncan or Waste Management carts will be picked up and should be left empty at the curb after your last pick-up the week of 10/22/18.

Thank you for your patience

Currently Rented Carts/Recycle Bins: For those currently renting GFL or other waste hauler provided carts, GFL will be picking up your old carts.  Once your final refuse/recycling pick-ups have been completed they will be sending a separate truck to collect the old carts and recycle bins. Please leave your empty rented carts/bins at the curb after your final pick-up the week of 10/22/18. If you have purchased your own store bought cart it can no longer be used for the automated truck.  Please do not leave your privately owned carts at the road if you do not want them taken.

Refuse Pick-up:  Regular household garbage service will remain weekly and must be placed in the supplied 96 gallon cart.  Most pick-up days will remain the same, those homes which are assigned a new refuse pickup day will receive a postcard informing them of the new pickup day.

Recycling Pick-up:  Recyling pickups will begin the week of November 5th. Advanced Disposal will provide recycling every other week using the provided 64 gallon cart.  Schedules will be posted as soon as available at the following websites www.genoa.org and www.advanceddisposal.com as well as Advanced Disposals Smartphone App.

Large Item Stickers: Large item stickers are no longer required.  Residents will now be allowed to place (1) large item per week at the curb for no additional charge. (no Freon items, please)

Yard Waste: Yard waste will continue to be a separate subscription service.  Contact Advanced Disposal at 1 888 443 1717 now to set up service for this fall.  The cost is $80.00 per season or $10.00 for November 2018.  Pick-up will be on a twice a month basis, with a limit of 15 bags per pick-up. 

The Township will continue this year’s Fall Yard Waste drop off at the Township Hall.  Typically the autumn drop off dates are in October & November, these dates vary from year to year based on the weather.

Enhanced Web and mobile communications:  The Advanced Disposal Mobile App is now live.  Android users can click HERE, Apple/iOS users HERE.  Twitter and/or text message reminders or emergency messaging will provide homeowners with alerts about weather delays and mechanical issues that may delay your service. 

Customer Service:  Advanced Disposal’s Northville Service Center will handle calls for Genoa residents and will be able to search your information by address to assist you. You can contact them at 1 888 443 1717.

Updated information: Updated information will be posted on both the Township Website & Advanced Disposal website as it becomes available.  Please visit www.genoa.org and www.advanceddisposal.com  or contact the township offices at 810-227-5225, Monday-Friday  9:00am - 5:00pm.
