Garbage pick-up within the Village occurs on Fridays and is provided by Emterra, which can be reached at (877) 609-6753.
Please place your garbage cans at the curb by 6:00 a.m. and remember to remove your cans from the curb within 24 hours of pick-up. Yard waste can be placed into bio-degradable bags or garbage cans marked with an "X" and can be picked up from April to November. Emterra will not pick up waste in plastic bags or waste placed on the ground. Recycling can be placed into specified recycling bins (available at the Village office) and picked up on Fridays as well. All fees for garbage disposal are included in your annual tax bill.
Tree limbs or branches are chipped by our Department of Public Works on the first and third Monday of the month from April through October. Please place the cut ends of the branches toward the curb so that our employees can service you more effectively. Branches must be cut to 6 foot in length and must be no larger than 4'' in diameter. Also, please remember that this service is not meant to support large commercial activities that are undertaken by professional tree trimmers. When these companies perform services they should also remove large branches and limbs.
The Village Department of Public Works will pick-up leaves during the fall season. Please refer to this website or Channel 189, the public access cable channel, for a leaf pick-up schedule.
The Village of Almont DPW is currently offering a free downspout inspection as a component of its downspout disconnection awareness campaign. Disconnecting downspouts that are connected to the sanitary sewer system can help prevent the flooding of basements and prevent the possibility that partially treated water from the wastewater treatment plant would overflow into the Clinton River.
