Welcome To Ash Township Carleton Michigan


Your Water & Sewer bills will no longer come to you as a paper bill in an envelope. 

Bills will soon be sent out in a post card format.

Please keep an eye out for them as they are smaller and could be overlooked or mistaken for junk mail. 

Thank you, 

Ash Township’s Water Department



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.
