Beginning Monday, October 29, 2018, ALL Genoa Township residential Refuse & Recycling pickup will be handled by Advanced Disposal.
How will this affect you:
Transition: Advanced Disposal uses automated single operated trucks which require the use of their carts by all customers. Approximately 2 weeks prior to Advanced Disposals start date of 10/29/18, these carts will be delivered to every residence, one 96 gallon refuse cart and one 64 gallon recycling cart. If you currently rent a cart you will no longer need to subscribe and pay for the carts separately. Tentative delivery dates are 10/15/18-10/26/18 for the new carts.
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 however some areas may need to be adjusted. Residents will be notified of any changes.
Recycling Pick-up: 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 per month. 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 and have not yet been set for this season.
Enhanced Web and mobile communications: A Smartphone App will be available for residents to access Holiday schedules, pick-up dates, etc. 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.
