Garbage collection and curbside recycling are currently contracted out to North Country Disposal (906-249-4500).

  • Billing -
    • Township residential properties are billed quarterly for services at a charge of $12.33 per month ($37 per quarter) for a full 12 months ($148 annually).    NOTE:   Per 3/25/2021 Board Approval rates were increased from $36 to $37 per quarter effective 4/1/2021.  This $1.00 per quarter fee increase is the first rate increase since 4/1/2008.
    • The fee is not waived for seasonal properties  or "snowbirds" who leave the area during winter months.
    • A $15.00 per quarter late fee  is charged to unpaid accounts and delinquent amounts become a  lien on the  winter tax bills.
    • $5.00 Permit Fee to dump at Marquette County Landfill  (does not include fee assessed by tonnage).
    • $60.00 Permanent Hauler annual fee.
  • Recycling is done each week on your regular garbage pick up day.   Simply place your recyclables in a recycle bin - separated from the regular household garbage.   Click the RECYCLING button to the left to see addtional information.
  • All household garbage put out for collection must be in sealed bags weighing less than 30 pounds. (No leaves, grass cuttings, branches or other such items)
  • North County Disposal would like to remind pet owners to keep their pets indoors or leashed on garbage collection days.  Loose, barking, aggressive animals can impede garbage collection.
  • Negaunee Township provides a once-a-month drop off for large rubbish items with one load allowed each month. The collection takes place the third Wednesday of each month from 9:00AM until 4:00PM in the parking lot of the Community Center. 
    • GLASS for RECYCLING will be accepted during rubbish drop off.  Please bring in a separate bin and Township personnel will dump the contents into our Glass Recycling Trailer.
  • Residents wishing to haul construction debris, tires, wood, lumber, etc directly to the Marquette County Landfill must first obtain a hauling permit from the Township office.   There is no charge for the permit but you will be billed by the Township for the cost of the actual tipping fees  ($59.50 per ton effective 7-1-2020).
