Rubbish shall not be placed on the street earlier than 5:00 pm of the night before regular pickup day. Empty receptacles shall be removed from the streets no later than 7:00 pm the day of the pickup.  

 
Advanced Disposal is proud to have been chosen by the City of Allen Park to be your waste and recycling services provider. Please know we will continue to provide the high quality and efficient collection you have come to expect.
 
YOUR SERVICES ARE GETTING AN UPGRADE!
 
We are providing Allen Park residents with one 96-gallon garbage cart and one 64-gallon recycling cart. Wheeled carts with lids provide you with more room for more items, and help keep your neighborhood clean and green.  In addition, collection will now be with an automated-side loading truck, a safer and more efficient way to service your City.
