We conduct curbside pickup twice a year in the spring (May) and the fall (October).

After that, yard wastes may be deposited at the UMT Yard Waste Drop-off Site.  UMT’s Yard Waste Site is located on Grim Road near the intersection with Schantz Road, next to the Public Works garage.  It is a service made available exclusively to township residents.

The township does not have curbside pickup of Christmas trees.

Contractors and businesses are NOT permitted to use this facility.

UMT residents may drop-off grass clippings, leaves, shrubs and small trees.  All waste must be removed from bags.  Please remember that grass must be separated from other yard-waste.  Shrubs and small trees no longer than 4 feet long and 5 inches wide are accepted.
