Notice: Strawberry Lake Treated for Weed Control Today – June 4th, 2019

The Washtenaw County Public Works Division has been requested by lake communities in northern Washtenaw and southern Livingston Counties to undertake a lake management program to control invasive weeds.

Strawberry Lake was treated today (June 4th 2019).

  • NO swimming for 24hrs
  • NO irrigation for 3 days.

This project will provide improvements to the Chain of Lakes by controlling invasive and nuisance weeds through the application of herbicides to the water and mechanical weed harvesting.

Trash Pickup Information

Greetings Strawberry Point Bluffs and Strawberry Estates Homeowners!

Some neighbors have asked about competing rates for trash pickup. The Garbageman in Brighton offers special rates for our two subdivisions if 40 or more households sign up. If you wish to change to this service you would need to cancel your current service effective June 30, 2019 end of quarter, and sign up with the Garbageman in June to start pickup effective July 1, 2019. The phone for The Garbageman is 810-225-3001.

The rate we have been quoted for 40 households or more is as follows:

  • Quarterly Rate with cart rental $48.00
  • Quarterly Rate supplying your own cart $42.00
  • Recycling plastic large bags $10.00 per roll of 10 bags
  • Yard waste in Brown paper leaf bags $2.00 per bag.
  • Pickup is on Thursdays after 12 noon.

Services quoted are pickup for one trash cart plus up to 4 kitchen bags per week. Yard waste pickup is every other week April through early December. Call for your pickup.

I have had this service for the past few months and have had no issues. I have had no problem with getting them to answer the phone and give me information. The senior rate is $45.00 per quarter for regular customers with their own cart, so the subdivision rate is a little cheaper than the senior rate. I hope this is helpful to you and you are able to call the Garbageman for any other questions. We are trying to keep the truck traffic in our subdivisions to a minimum however prices keep rising so an alternative trash pickup service is being offered for subdivision rates.

Sincerely,
Beth Freiberg, Secretary Strawberry Point Bluffs HOA
