Refuse Collection

Winter Collection Advisory:

GFL is asking residents to place all refuse and recycling containers on the driveway during snowfalls. Between last night's heavy snowfall and street plowing, a lot of bags and containers are getting buried making collection difficult. In order to help the process run smoothly, GFL is requesting residents place all refuse and recycling on the drive way and not on top of snowbanks. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.

For questions or more information on yard waste, refuse and recycling collection visit or call GFL at 844/464-3587.


All refuse, recycling, and yard waste questions and concerns should be directed to GFL Environmental USA Inc., at 844/464-3587. If after speaking to GFL and your concern is not resolved, please call Public Works at 734/397-1011 ext 0.

GFL is open on scheduled Fridays from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. for RECYCLING ONLY (plastics, paper, cardboard, tin, glass, etc.) and scheduled Saturdays from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. for recycling and Canton Clean-up. Please see Canton Clean-up Guidelines for acceptable items.

Please prepare all materials properly for speedy, efficient pickup. Proper packaging will help to cut costs to residents and reduce injury to the sanitation workers. Thank you for your cooperation.

Single Stream Recycling 

GFL Environmental USA Inc. offers single stream curbside recycling (SSR) to all residents. SSR is more efficient and allows residents to recycle more products with less effort. Canton would like to thank all residents for helping to conserve our precious natural resources.
