April 1, 2022 - March 31, 2023 Waste Management has substantially increased their minimum garbage charge from $4 to $39 effective 1/1/2022. If you have a dumpster from Waste Management (WM) or Green For Life Environmental (GFL), formerly Great American Disposal, you may have also incurred additional fuel charges because of the increase in gas prices. Although we cannot influence Waste Management’s corporate policies nor lower gas prices, Mastodon Township recognized the need to address these additional charges for our residents. We are pleased to announce that we have increased the value of our garbage program from $200 to $250 per year reimbursement. I am enclosing ten $20 vouchers and five $10 vouchers. As an alternative to paying the higher price at WM, GFL offers 95 gal. garbage containers and 2, 4, 6 or 8 yard dumpsters that can be picked up on a regular basis. Contact them at (906) 774-9006, ext. 1, for more information. The following is for your information: The vouchers will cover services that fall from 4/1/22 through 3/31/23. Garbage and recycling must be disposed at a local vendor – GFL, WM, or Tru-Recycling. All Alpha residents who purchase garbage bags from the Village office, can turn in those receipts for reimbursement. If you have a dumpster, you can submit a copy of your monthly invoice for reimbursement. If you take garbage to WM or GFL, you must collect a receipt for the amount paid. You may use multiple combinations of vouchers to cover a receipt or you could use one voucher to cover multiple receipts. The amount on the voucher will be the maximum paid for each voucher sent in for reimbursement with appropriate receipts attached. The voucher has no cash value unless accompanied by acceptable receipts. No reimbursement will be given for a voucher submitted without a receipt. Residents can also form a group, combining their vouchers to cover garbage costs. If this is the case, you need to notify me of all the residents in your group. One person from the group will be the administrator. They will submit the invoices and vouchers to me for payment. Payment will only be made to the administrator. You can send your receipts/vouchers to me anytime throughout the year. They can also be dropped in our secure drop box located to the right of our front doors. Reimbursements will be processed monthly. Please note that all vouchers for the 2022/23 year MUST be received in this office no later than April 10, 2023. The Township keeps track of all vouchers turned in so feel free to contact the office if you lose some of your vouchers and need replacements. Click here for Waste Management hours of operation. Survey: Resident’s opinion on the best way for the Township to benefit from funds received.
