Dumpsters / refuse collection

Dumpsters
Portable Storage Units
Temporary roll-off dumpsters and portable storage units are allowed in residential neighborhoods as long as an Outside Refuse Permit has been pulled for the specific property on which it has been placed. In order to keep Lathrup Village’s neighborhoods trash and litter free, dumpsters must be emptied regularly to prevent overflow or odor. 

To check the permit status of a dumpster in your neighborhood, please contact the Building Department at (248) 557-2600 ext.222 .
