In the past, the Township has participated with the City of Livonia and City of Northville's HHW events. We DID NOT be partner with them in 2019. Northville Township residents WERE NOT be able to take items to those two events. 


We realized at the end of 2018 that the Township was paying $35 a car to participate with the City of Northville and Livonia events and it was going to increase in price in 2019. In 2018, we had a total of 1,066 cars combined at both events Unfortunately, it was not viable for us to continue to partner for this event, with less than 9% of our residents utilizing the service, the cost of $36,000 was too high. We are partnering with Wayne County at no cost.

*Latex paint can be treated so that it can be discarded on your regular trash day. Simply add some kitty litter to the leftover paint, stir with a paint stir stick and store uncovered in a safe place. After several days the paint will harden. Put the cans of hardened paint inside a trash bag along with the lids.

Need to dispose of old medications?

Bring your unwanted medication - no liquids, needles or injectable medication - to the secure drop box in the lobby at the Northville Township Police Department at 41600 Six Mile Rd.
