Household Hazardous Waste Drop-Off Now Year-Round

Hazardous Waste

The City of Livonia is kicking to the curb its old annual Household Hazardous Waste collection event.  

Instead, Livonia residents will be able to drop off their Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) and Electronic Waste (E-Waste) throughout the year at ERG Environmental Services (ERG), 13040 Merriman Road, located on the east side of the street, just north of Industrial Drive.

Residents are able to deliver their HHW and E-Waste items to ERG during the following times:

  • Monday, Wednesday, Friday..................... 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Tuesday, Thursday..................................... 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • Saturdays.................................................... Special dates to be determined
  • Sundays and Federal Holidays*............... Closed
    * Including the day after Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve

Once the Saturday dates are set, residents wishing to drop off items will be asked to schedule an appointment with ERG at (734) 437-9650 to avoid traffic congestion on surface streets.

Residents delivering waste items will be asked to verify City of Livonia residency.

City of Livonia residents may drop off up to a maximum of 100 lbs. of HHW and E-Waste items, for example:

  • Up to 100 lbs. of HHW and no E-waste.
  • Up to 100 lbs. of combined HHW and E-Waste.
  • Up to 100 lbs. of E-waste and no HHW.    

Drop off is free up to 100 lbs. maximum.  Residents will pay 75 cents per pound over 100 lbs.
