June 28, 2017 – The City of Midland’s Public Services crews continue to hit the streets this week to assist residents with removal of flood-damaged items during a special heavy item collection.
On Thursday, June 29, DPS crews will be collecting flood-damaged items from neighborhoods west of Perrine Road toward Dublin Avenue, north of US 10, and in the area bounded by Eastman Avenue, Wheeler Street, Jefferson Avenue, and Sugnet Road.
Citizens can follow along with DPS’ flood collection progress through the City’s flood collection map at www.cityofmidlandmi.gov/floodcollection. The map will be updated each morning.
Regular refuse and recycling collection continues as scheduled during this time. Residents whose refuse or recycling were not collected on Friday, June 23 due to the flooding event should place their items at the curb by 7:30 a.m. on Friday, June 30 to receive collection. Regular heavy item collection has been suspended at this time to allow for special flood-related item collection. Heavy item collection will resume once the flooding collection has concluded.
Residents are reminded that liquid or hazardous materials should not be put out for collection. These items must be disposed of via the Hazardous Waste Collection Program through the Midland County Health Department. For more information on this program and what qualifies as hazardous waste, please visit https://co.midland.mi.us/HealthDepartment/EnvironmentalHealthServices/HouseholdHazardousWasteEWaste.aspx. Latex paint can be dried out with sand or cat litter and set out next to refuse on your weekly collection day.
