Trash Pick Up and Container Care

The City of Ann Arbor picks up trash and recyclables on Wednesday mornings. In the event that a holiday falls on a Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, trash pickup is delayed by one day. 

Note that homeowners may place their trash containers outside of their garage up to 24 hours ahead of pickup, and must restore trash containers to their garages within 12 hours after pickup. If you’ll be away, please consider asking whether a neighbor can assist you.
