CLEAN UP DAYS
DATES FOR NEXT YEAR:
Sat May 6th, 2023
Sat August 5th, 2023
8 AM - 11 AM . . .
(or until the trucks are full.)
These two days a summer are sponsored by the township, with tax payer dollars, offering a "free" day in which to rid your household of junk, oversized and awkward things, stuff one wouldn't normally be able to dispose of through regular weekly trash pick up. In recent years, it is serviced by American Waste and the collection site is at the Frankfort Dow Airport, just south of the township hall at 650 Airport Road.
There are rules for Clean Up Day:
• WE WILL ACCEPT: Trash/garbage, scrap metal, furniture, mattresses (4 max.), appliances without freon or refrigerant, minimal building waste, dry latex or water-based paint in open cans.
• SMALL LOOSE ITEMS: Must be contained within throw away boxes to save time and energy of when unloading.
• NOT ACCEPTABLE: No tires, TV’s, computers, hazardous bio- or medical waste, paint, thinner, oil, other unknown liquids, batteries, bulbs & other hazardous waste, concrete or yard waste. Only minimal do-it-yourselfer construction waste; no contractors or commercial building dumping.
• NO GUARANTEES: When the trucks are full, service will be discontinued even if it is before 11am. Monitors reserve the right to refuse any material deemed unsuitable for disposal.
• FOR ADDITIONAL SERVICES: Check with our Benzie County recycling department for special recycling dates and locations. Call Jesse Zylstra at 882-0554 or email him at Jzylstra@benzieco.net or check out the website, benzieco.net.
