PUBLIC NOTCE JULY 14, -  2020 CONCERNING REPUBLIC TRASH BINS

After sending two seperate notices to Republic Waste Services to remove their property (blue trash bins) from Lyon Township with no repsonse, the Township is contracting with another company to remove the blue bins, which will start at the latest by the end of the week. We ask everyone to please not push trash into the blue bins, but if there is something in there now, American Waste will remove it. Thank you for everyone's patience in this matter.
