Garbage Collection

The City of Grand Blanc, in conjunction with Republic Services, provides residential curbside garbage pickup on Monday in provided blue carts. Collection of recycling is also provided every other week in the blue carts (with green lids).

Important things to know about your residential garbage pickup:

  •  Please use trash bags to contain your waste inside the Cart. This will reduce the need for periodic cleaning.
  • The Curb Cart should be placed at the curb NO LATER than 6:00 a.m. on Mondays.
  • Retrieve carts from the curb by midnight on your pickup day.
  • We ask that residents store carts so they can’t be seen from the street while standing in front of the house.
  • Bulky items may be placed curbside each week for collection. Bulky Items must be bundled in parcels not to exceed two (2) feet by four (4) feet in size and/or fifty (50) pounds in weight.

Clean-Up Week    

Clean Up Week is a bi-annual event held each Spring and Fall in the City of Grand Blanc. Branches 4” or less in diameter, that are NOT tied or bundled, will be collected during Cleanup Week each Spring and Fall by the City chipper. Branches tied and bundled in 4-foot lengths will be picked up by Republic Services every week on trash day April through November.

For questions about your garbage collection, please call Republic Services at (800) 438-0966.

These items must be set out at the curb on Monday and stacked or laid in one direction so they can be easily handled.
