Dear Wakefield Township Resident and/or Taxpayer:
On behalf of the Wakefield Township Board, it is my pleasure to announce Spring Cleanup 2021. Our Board sees great value in providing our residents an avenue to clean up their properties easily and conveniently to keep our township looking it’s best.
Our cleanup will be held on Saturday, May 22 from 8:00 a.m. until 12:00 NOON. This cleanup program is for Wakefield Township residents and taxpayers only. BRING A DRIVER LICENSE OR OTHER FORM OF I.D. AS WE WILL BE CHECKING THEM CLOSELY THIS YEAR. Western U.P. Recycling is located on Planter Road/Chippewa Drive, just off N. County Rd. 519. We appreciate Western U.P. Recycling’s role in helping us expand this cleanup and allowing us to use their facility free of charge.
Couches, wood furniture, plastic items, and anything not made of steel should be placed in the dumpsters that are provided. Car batteries and small piles of steel and other metals can be placed on the trailer or in the designated area near the dumpsters. NO TIRES, REFRIGERATORS, FREEZERS, TV’S, MICROWAVES, CEMENT, MATTRESSES AND BOX SPRINGS ACCEPTED AT THIS LOCATION. These items can be brought directly to the transfer station for a small fee. Please contact the Transfer Station at 906-932-0600 for pricing.
Western U.P. Recycling has been contracted to remove any large steel items from the township residences. Contact them directly at 229-5150. They will use a skidder to remove cars or trucks which are inaccessible to the road area. From there, they will be picked up with a truck. This service is available in the spring, summer and fall and to some degree in the winter.
This is the thirteenth year of our cleanup, and thanks to our responsible residents, our efforts are paying off in making our properties look better and free of junk. I would like to thank the township residents in advance for doing their part in making this a successful cleanup again this year.
Wakefield Township Supervisor
