New Online Waste Search Tool and Collection Day Notification System
Orion Township, MI (July 27, 2020) Orion Township launched its new online garbage notification tool, ReCollect, to make it even easier for residents to stay connected and informed about the Township’s waste and recycling collection program with Green for Life Environmental, USA (GFL). The entirety of which was paid for using remaining grant dollars from the Recycling Partnership.
Residents are able to access the ReCollect tool on the Township’s website at www.oriontownship.org/recycling. In the search tool, you will find the garbage, recycling, and yard waste collection schedule specific to your address. The tool will also allow you to sign up for collection day reminders (which automatically adjust for holidays), so you’ll never forget again! In addition, you can sign up just for service alerts to be immediately notified about service delays or issues impacting your collection.
Once you search your address, you can then:
- Sign up for waste collection reminders and/or service alerts by email, phone call, or text message.
- Download your collection schedule into your iCal, Google calendar, or Microsoft Outlook calendar.
- Print your collection schedule.
Also in the online tool, residents can search the Waste Wizard to find out if materials can be reused, recycled, composted, or disposed. Using the online tool, you can learn how to recycle or dispose of materials ranging from aluminum foil, to prescription medications, to clothes hangers. Simply type the name of a waste material to get started! Not finding your item? Click the button to suggest it as a new item.
“The residents of Orion Township have embraced our new solid waste program and do a great job recycling and diverting waste away from landfills,” said Township Supervisor Chris Barnett. “With our new ReCollect online search tool, it’s even easier for residents to stay informed about the Township’s solid waste program, and to sort their waste properly. We are pleased to be able to provide this free tool to our residents to encourage them to keep up and grow their recycling efforts!”
