Waste and Recycling Pickup
May 11, 2021
Grand Blanc Township has been informed by Emterra that they continue to suffer a reduced workforce because of ongoing positive COVID-19 tests and forced quarantines of impacted employees to comply with the government mandated CDC and MDHHS guidelines. This will result in only one (1) available truck/crew for recycle pick-up for the Township, which is normally completed by four (4) trucks/crews.
With the volume of recycle last week it took Emterra employees six (6) days to complete the route throughout the Township. With the pandemic impacts continuing to cause the shortage of staffing for Emterra, the single crew will be taking longer to complete the recycling pick-up again this week. Please be patient and know the drivers are doing their best to get through their route as soon as possible.
Grand Blanc Township continues to explore alternatives to this unfortunate situation, and we will provide updates as they become available. Please understand that this situation is beyond the control of the Township and Emterra. Emterra is currently working on providing a recycling drop off facility and the address will be published as soon as available for those not wanting to wait for curbside pickup.
