This month, all curbside recycling participants will receive a new sticker to place on their recycling cart.

The sticker will have a QR code that will take you directly to www.canton-mi.org/230. This page contains an up-to-date list of what is and is not acceptable in your curbside recycling cart. We encourage residents to scan this code often so contaminated items do not end up in your cart. The sticker is 4x6 and weather proof. Questions about Canton’s curbside program can be emailed to municipalservices@cantonmi.gov.

Hello Neighbors!

Summer in Canton is in full swing. Last month’s Liberty Fest was the most successful event to-date, with great weather and fun for everyone, and I loved visiting with many of you! The outdoor fun continues with the Thursday Night Concert Series in Heritage Park, as well as the Tuesdays Are Terrific concerts every Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. in Heritage Park. July also sees the return of Rally on Ridge, our annual food truck event in Cherry Hill Village, and the Pride OUTside event. Of course, there are always the parks, trails and golf courses to enjoy if you are looking for other outdoor activity this summer. There is something for everyone in Canton!

Unfortunately, summer also brings road construction. The good news is that with all of the beautiful weather we have been enjoying, there haven’t been any long delays on the work being done. The Canton Center reconstruction from Ford to Warren is looking great so far, and the resurfacing on Beck between Ford and Warren will be beautiful when complete. The small driving inconveniences caused by these projects will be well worth it.

If you are looking for ways to become involved with the community, I would encourage you to consider applying to one of our Boards and Commissions. Or, you may just want to participate in one of the Master Plan engagement activities and provide input into the future of our community. 

Please stay safe and enjoy all that Canton has to offer this summer!
