These events provide an opportunity
for residents to dispose of many unwanted household items in a safe and
sustainable manner. Numerous household materials can be brought to these
Traditional recyclable materials (plastics,
glass, aluminum, cardboard, paper)
Appliances (washers, dryers, air conditioners,
Household hazardous materials (cleaning
supplies, motor oil, pesticides, mercury, paint, etc.)
Electronic equipment (computers, televisions,
Sharps (diabetic needles, etc.)
The events are free, but there is a
suggested $10 donation per car to help decrease disposal costs and to help
maintain this community collection. Residents may bring up to four tires for
free; a $5 donation is suggested for each additional tire. Residents can also
bring one television, appliance or computer, but a $10 donation is suggested
for each additional item.
This is a service for Washtenaw
County residents only, funded and coordinated by the Washtenaw County Solid
Waste Division of the Water Resources Commissioner’s Office, Washtenaw County
Public Health, Northfield Township, Superior Township, the City of Saline, the
City of Ann Arbor and Eastern Michigan University. All Washtenaw County
residents are welcome and encouraged to attend. This collection is intended for
residential use only – please, no businesses.

The Planning and Zoning Department has begun an extensive review of old files.
We have discovered many zoning permits that the applicants never contacted the Township for inspections, which are necessary in order to issue a final certificate of zoning compliance. We will be proactively conducting site inspections to determine if work has been completed and document the improvements. If work has not begun and the zoning permit has expired, letters will be sent to the property owners, letting them know of the expiration.
We will also be revisiting properties that have had documented violations of the Zoning Ordinance or the Anti-Blight Ordinance that have not been resolved.
Staff wears a bright yellow vest that says "Dexter Township" across the back.
Staff does not generally knock on doors to introduce themselves when conducting an inspection, but feel free to stop them if you have any questions.
Please contact us during business hours if you have any questions.
