Free waste drop off center is now open

Residents of Northville Township and the City of Northville now have access to a free new Household Hazardous Waste drop-off center, which opened Oct. 3.

Operated by Washtenaw County in collaboration with GFL Environmental, the facility is located in the Arbor Hills complex at 10843 W. Five Mile Road, just west of Napier Road.  

The 2,400-square-foot HHW Center is open for residents by appointment only Tuesday-Friday. 

To make an appointment or find a list of acceptable materials, visit 

The hazardous materials may only come from residential sources rather than businesses, organizations or government entities.

The HHW Center is one of the improvements Arbor Hills Landfill in Salem Township agreed to make as part of a lawsuit settlement with the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy (EGLE). 

This facility will be available for free for 10 years to residents of Northville Township and the City of Northville. Arbor Hills, now owned by GFL Environmental, constructed the facility and is paying Washtenaw County $75,000 annually for staffing.
