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