County Clean-Up Days

There are no more County Clean-Up Days in 2023. Come back in 2024 to register for the next event. 

County Clean-Up Days are events where Washtenaw County residents can recycle and dispose of many household items including electronics, household hazardous waste, bulky waste, appliances, and scrap tires. There are typically five events each year held in different locations spread out around Washtenaw County. Washtenaw County residents may attend any of the events.

Beginning in 2023, registration will be required to attend any County Clean-Up Day event. This change will allow us to better serve residents by spacing out event traffic arrival time. This strategy will significantly reduce wait times and reduce carbon emissions caused by idling cars at events.

Make a Contribution

These events are FREE! 

However, there is a suggested donation of $15 per car to assist in disposal costs. Additional donations are appreciated for some items:

  • Residents may bring up to 4 tires; a $5 donation is suggested for each additional tire. 
  • Residents can also bring 1 freon appliance; a $10 donation is suggested for each additional item.

Cash and check donations are accepted at the Clean-Up Days at the event's check-in station. Make checks payable to Washtenaw County.


We rely on the help of volunteers to run a smooth event for the community! 

Volunteers primarily help direct traffic and unload materials from resident cars. We provide volunteers with a t-shirt, snacks, drinks, and lunch. 

Volunteers do not need to fill out the event registration to drop off materials at the event. However, volunteers do need to sign up for a shift to volunteer.
