Welcome To Ash Township Carleton Michigan

Important Notice

The MDEQ and MDHHS are issuing a warning to not each fish out of the Huron River.  The background to this is that all the testing upstream (Oakland, Washtenaw and Livingston) has indicated elevated amounts of PFAS, so the assumption is that the fish near the mouth at Lake Erie will also be elevated.



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.
