Annual Spring Clean-Up day is drawing near! As a service to residents, the Village of Middleville has arranged with Republic Services a special pick-up day of household items, rolled carpet, furniture, and other large and bulky objects that have outlived their usefulness. The annual clean-up will be split into East of M-37 and West of M-37.
Residents living on the west side of M-37 can begin placing items on the edge of a Village street that adjoins their residence on April 16, 2022. THE PICK-UP DATE FOR THE WEST SIDE OF M-37 IS APRIL 23. All items must be placed at the curb by 9 pm the day before the pick-up as the private hauler will make one sweep beginning at 7 am.
Residents living on the east side of M-37 can begin placing items on the edge of a Village street that adjoins their residence on April 24, 2022. THE PICK-UP DATE FOR THE EAST SIDE OF M-37 IS APRIL 30. All items must be placed at the curb by 9 pm the day before the pick-up as the private hauler will make one sweep beginning at 7 am.
The private hauler will not pick up the following: petroleum-based products, toxic chemicals, paint, motor vehicle parts, building demolition or construction materials (including concrete), batteries, food wastes, animal wastes, and carcasses, and any other materials deemed to be hazardous (see below).
Refrigerators and other appliances will be picked up but must have all airtight doors completely detached for safety reasons.
The annual Spring Clean-Up days are financed by Village property taxes and are only for Village residents and property owners. This service is not extended to apartment complexes, condominiums, or mobile home parks. Any Village resident allowing Spring Clean-Up items from outside the Village will forfeit their pick-up. If unauthorized waste items are mixed in with authorized waste items, the result will be that no items will be collected from that residence.
If items are placed out at the curb after the waste hauler has made the scheduled one sweep of the Village, the resident will be responsible for disposing of those items and any expense related to that disposal.
