Recycle Bin Schedule
First of all Ash Township Board would like to "Thank" those citizens who abide by the rules of the recycle bin.
We are sad to say that due to continual abuse of the recycle bin the Ash Township Board has decided limit the times in which the recycle bin will be available. Starting July 1, 2015 the bin will be available on the 1st and 15th of each month until full, once the bin is full it will be removed until the next scheduled day and so on.
Continual abuse of the recycle bin could lead to the suspension of the program indefinitely. Unacceptable materials such as paint cans, chemicals, used tires, pallets, household garbage, building materials, TV's, computer equipment, etc., are continually being left in and around the recycle bin. If you have any questions regarding what is acceptable you can contact the Ash Township Hall during normal business hours for clarification.
Public Safety Committee Volunteers Needed
Ash Township is seeking volunteers to serve on a Public Safety Committee to be lead by Supervisor Robin Carmack. If interested contact Supervisor Robin Carmack at 734-654-6992 ext 26.

Tire CollectionThe Monroe County Solid Waste Program assisted with collection of over 2,500 passenger tires during the only tire collection event scheduled for the 2014 calendar year. If you have passenger tires, tractor/trailer tires or farm implement tires that you would like to recycle, you can contact Jason Childress at 734-240-7900 for information on where these can be properly disposed during the normal course of the year.
In 2015, we will be trying a new system that will allow Monroe County homeowners the opportunity to drop off more tires throughout the year. Tires will be collected from 9:00 am until 1:00 pm on the last Wednesday of each month (April through October) at the Monroe County Drain Commissioners Office; 1005 S. Raisinville Road, Monroe, MI 48162. No registration is required. The location will be manned with volunteers to assist in the unloading of your tires. The site is also secure on hours that are not listed and dropping your tires at that location outside of the scheduled times could result in fines or prosecution to anyone that does.
*There is a limit of 7 tires per resident. Passenger vehicle tires only.

Thank you Community Foundation of Monroe for the new playground equipment.
If you take advantage of the Recycling Program here at the Ash Township Hall then this notice is important to you. As you may know this free to-the-taxpayer service is very popular, but the program may be in jeopardy and we are asking you, the user, to help. We ask that ALL MATERIALS BE FLATTENED, prior to depositing (except glass). The Township has a cost of $300+ for each time the dumpster needs to be emptied. When materials (cans, plastic bottles, boxes, etc.) are not flattened we end up trucking off a lot of air. We need to use every inch of the dumpster every time. If we can't limit the number of times the dumpster needs emptied then the program will surely run out of funding much too early in the budget year.
Please do your part and FLATTEN ALL MATERIALS, all the time.
