County Clean-Up Days

The Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner’s Office and Board of Public Works, as well as several community partners, will be sponsoring Environmental Clean-up Days for Washtenaw County residents. These events provide opportunities for residents to dispose of many unwanted household items in a safe and sustainable manner.  See the event flyers for details on acceptable items.

2021 Clean Up Days

  • April 24, 2021 - Chelsea
  • June 26, 2021 - Whitmore Lake
  • July - Saline (date and location pending)
  • July 24, 2021 - Augusta Township - Lincoln High School, Ypsilanti
  • August 14, 2021 - EMU, Ypsilanti


These events are FREE! However, there is a suggested $15 donation per car to help decrease disposal costs and to help maintain these community collections. 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.

Who can participate

This is a service for Washtenaw County residents only, funded and coordinated by the Washtenaw County Board of Public Works, the Office of the Water Resources Commissioner and local municipalities. All Washtenaw County residents are welcome and encouraged to attend. These collections are intended for residential use only – please, no businesses.
