Our budget focuses on advancing our new strategic plan, which prioritizes economic prosperity and affordability, mobility, safe community, health and environment, governmental excellence, and engaged and connected community.

Wondering when your trash and recycling is picked up? You can use our My Neighborhood page to look up your next collection dates.
If you're looking this up for someone else, you'll need their address. My Neighborhood might ask to use your location. If you say yes, you don't need to type in your address.
We have a fast and convenient way you can keep up with what's happening around you. Enter your address in above the map. Then scroll down below the map to see your next trash and recycle collection dates.

You can download the paper Recycling Schedule(PDF, 317KB) to print for your reference.
Make sure to put your bin out at the curb before 7:00 am on the day of collection. We recommend moving it the night before to make sure you don't miss a pickup.
We can't collect your trash if you don't have enough money in your account. You can find your account balance, tip history and recycle cart history in your grpayit account.
Don't have a grpayit account? Give us a call at 311 or 616-456-3000. We'll give you your account information.
Our City code says you can't leave your bin at the curb. Make sure you move it back to your property on the same day it's collected.
