County Announces 4 Clean-up Days, All Require Registration


Washtenaw County Water Resources Materials Management Division announced the 2024 County Clean-Up Day schedule.

This year, county residents have access to four County Clean-Up Days to dispose of or recycle  a variety of household items in a safe and responsible manner. Registration is required to attend any Materials Management service, including County Clean-Up Days.

“The participation at these events is fantastic! Last year we collected over a half a million pounds of material from over 1700 residents at our Clean-Up Days. Residents last year really appreciated how much the new registration process reduced wait times. We are thankful to our volunteers and sponsors that help create such a valued community service,” said Washtenaw Public Works Director Theo Eggermont.

Here are the dates of the events as well as the date registration opens for each event.

  • June 15 – Augusta Township Registration opens May 6

  • July 27 – Pittsfield Township Registration opens June 17
  • August 24 – City of Ypsilanti Registration opens July 15

Precise event location will be provided to residents after registration.

Registration will open six weeks before the event and close one week before the event, or when all slots are filled. Residents can register at or by phone at 734-222-3950.

Materials will only be accepted from Washtenaw County residents.

Only residential material is allowed. Material from local businesses, government agencies, non-profits, or other organizations is not accepted.
