Superior Charter Township has a contract with Republic Services for weekly curbside residential solid waste including recycling. This contract was negotiated by the Township to assure the best possible service for the least cost to our residents. Residents who live in apartment complexes or manufacture home communities have solid waste service through their landlords/rental companies.
The current cost is $52.29 per quarter billed quarterly directly to the homeowner. The homeowner signs a contract with Republic for this service (1-800-878-4626 toll free). The cost includes one 95-gallon curb cart for the containment of waste, which will be picked up every week in either a 95 or 65-gallon curb cart for recycled waste. The recycle carts and yard waste will be picked-up every other week (see below for schedule). In addition, you may use normal plastic secured garbage bags for household waste. Yard waste must be placed in biodegradable brown paper craft bags (available at most hardware stores or nurseries) or loose in trash cans with handles. Cans must be clearly marked COMPOST. Small limbs or brush can be securely tied in bundles that do not exceed 4 feet in length or 30 pounds in weight. There is no limit on the amount of bags you put out each week. The contract is a sole and exclusive franchise and Republic is the only contractor allowed in the Township for residential service.
