The Canton Township Board of Trustees in Michigan has voted unanimously to approve a five-year, $26 million agreement with Priority Waste.

The vote, resulting in a 6-0 decision, took place earlier this month. Priority Waste will take over collection duties from GFL Environmental during the first week of August. The new contract with Priority Waste will extend to July 31, 2029.

“We’re pretty pleased with what (Priority Waste) is offering the township,” said Dave Norwood, Canton Township’s director of municipal services.

Priority Waste will provide residents with 95-gallon trash carts to replace the current protocol of using 35-gallon containers and garbage bags. The five-year contract will offset the cost of the trash carts for the company.
