                                                                                                                            ENVIRONMENTAL CLEAN-UP DAYS
                                   The Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner’s Office and community partners will be sponsoring three Environmental Clean-Up Days for                                                                                                   Washtenaw County residents this year. The Clean-Up Days will take place:
                                   • Saturday, October 1, 2016, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at the Saline Department of Public Works, located at 1234 Tefft Court in Saline.
• Saturday, October 15, 2016, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Eastern Michigan University, in the parking lot across the street from Rynearson Stadium, located at 799 N. Hewitt in Ypsilanti.

These events provide an opportunity for residents to dispose of many unwanted household items in a safe and sustainable manner. Numerous household materials can be brought to these events, including:
• Traditional recyclable materials (plastics, glass, aluminum, cardboard, paper)
• Scrap metal
• Appliances (washers, dryers, air conditioners, refrigerators, etc.)
• Household hazardous materials (cleaning supplies, motor oil, pesticides, mercury, paint, etc.)
• Electronic equipment (computers, televisions, toasters, etc.)
• Sharps (diabetic needles, etc.)

The events are free, but there is a suggested $10 donation per car to help decrease disposal costs and to help maintain this community collection. Residents may bring up to four tires for free; a $5 donation is suggested for each additional tire. Residents can also bring one television, appliance or computer, but a $10 donation is suggested for each additional item.

This is a service for Washtenaw County residents only, funded and coordinated by the Washtenaw County Solid Waste Division of the Water Resources Commissioner’s Office, Washtenaw County Public Health, Northfield Township, Superior Township, the City of Saline, the City of Ann Arbor and Eastern Michigan University. All Washtenaw County residents are welcome and encouraged to attend. This collection is intended for residential use only – please, no businesses.

The Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner is conducting on-site inspections of all county drains to better assess condition and prioritize maintenance needs. Crews may be more visible for the next 18 months. Funded by the Department of Environmental Quality, the work will lead to more proactive maintenance and improve water quality.
