County Clean-Up Day events are held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Materials can be accepted from Washtenaw County residents only, not from businesses, government agencies, non-profits, or other organizations. Events may accept different items - commonly accepted items include appliances (some events accept freon-containing appliances), bulky waste (mattresses, furniture, scrap wood), electronics, household hazardous waste, scrap metal, and car tires. Washtenaw County residents should check the event flyer and map prior to the event date for accepted items and event details at washtenaw.org/cleanup.
County Clean-Up Day events have a suggested $15 donation per car to assist in disposal costs and to maintain these community events. Donations are not required for participation.
Sponsors for County Clean-Up Day events include the Washtenaw County Board of Public Works, City of Ann Arbor, Northfield Township, St. Joseph Mercy Ann Arbor, and additional community partners. Residential tire disposal is partly funded by the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) Scrap Tire CleanUp Grant.
