WEEKLY OR BY-WEEKLY RECYCLING?
Northville Township is looking into switching to a weekly recycling pick-up for residents and want to know what you think!

Northville Township currently has an amended solid waste services contract with GFL through June 2022. Through mutual agreement between the Township and GFL, the contract can be amended to add weekly recycling. The estimated cost increase to add weekly recycling for residents would be $2 a month or $24 a year. Northville Township is currently on a bi-weekly schedule for recycling. We have received feedback from residents (and did a poll on facebook) about adding weekly recycling, but wanted to see how many residents are interested in switching. If you receive a water bill, a survey card was mailed to you with your bill. Please fill it in and send it back! If you do not receive a water bill or would rather fill it out online, you are welcome to complete the survey here . It will be open until May 7.

If you have more questions or need additional information, please contact our Communications Department at 248.662.0504 or socialmedia@twp.northville.mi.us .

NATIONAL PRESCRIPTION DRUG
TAKE BACK DAY - Saturday, April 28
On Saturday, April 28, 2018 from 10 am - 2 pm, the NorthvilleTownship Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public the opportunity to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Bring your pills for disposal to 41600 Six Mile Road . (The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.) The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. You will be asked to remove any personal information, including labels, from drug containers.
 
This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue. Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs. Studies show that a majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines - flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash - both pose potential safety and health hazards.


Contact the Police Department at 248.662.0456 with questions. If you can't make it to this event, the Northville Township Public Safety Team accepts unwanted prescription drugs 24/7 in the main lobby of the Police Department.

MAY IS BUILDING SAFETY MONTH
Building Safety Month is celebrated annually in May to help individuals, families, and businesses learn what it takes to create and maintain safe and sustainable homes and buildings in their communities. Our Northville Township Board of Trustees has also proclaimed May as Building Safety Month. Continuing efforts by those in the building community give us confidence that our structures are safe and sound. Our confidence is achieved through the devotion of vigilant guardians – building officials who work year-round to ensure the safe construction of buildings. Enjoy the wealth of information on this site available for you and to share with your friends and colleagues.

Northville Township Hall will have a display set up throughout the month of May with information, hand-outs and visual aids to educate the community on the importance of Building Safety Month.
