The event is free and intended for Washtenaw County residents only, as it is funded by local entities: Washtenaw County Solid Waste Program, EMU, Superior Township and, for the first time, the city of Ann Arbor.
Donations of $10 per carload are suggested to decrease the cost of disposal for the Washtenaw County Solid Waste Program.
There are limits on the number of items accepted. Residents can bring one television, one Freon-containing appliance and one computer per car load, but an additional $10 donation is suggested for each additional item.
People can also drop off up to four car tires for free before a donation of $5 per additional tire is suggested.
