However, you can take half of the Assessor’s property value and multiply it by the applicable current year millage rate for a rough estimate. (($200,000 market value x 50% = 100,000 times the most recent Summer and Winter PRE millages combined, .062259 (62.259 Mills) = $6,225.90)). If the current millage rates are not available, prior years will be used as an estimator. This estimate does not include 1% administration fee or special assessments.
*Please note this example is for South Redford School District, and utilized 2021 PRE Millage Rates.

Residents are reminded not to call 911 when the siren is sounded unless there is an actual emergency situation.

Regular household garbage.
Yes! Bags are required to eliminate odors, spills, and rodents. Please keep lids closed at all times to help keep our community litter-free.
For the occasional bag or two, please place it alongside your cart. If you need an additional cart, you will have to purchase one.

Yard waste pickup takes place the same day as your regular trash pickup from April through mid-December. It begins the Monday of the first full week of April and ends on the second Friday of December. If you have yard waste after the pickup ends in December you will be required to store it out of view from the street until pickups resume in April when the compost landfills reopen. Please place your yard waste 5 feet away from your regular trash.
Materials involved in construction or remodeling (including large boards, drywall, floor/ceiling tiles), cement, and auto parts/tires are not acceptable for pickup because of the damage that can occur to the sanitation vehicle's packer mechanism and are excluded as acceptable waste items under our waste hauling contract. Residents who need to dispose of these types of materials may use one of the two landfills listed below that are available to the public. We suggest you call first to find out the days/hours they are open and to find out what fees you will be charged, as they are subject to change. Tire stores will take used tires and there is usually a small cost associated with the disposal. Those with large amounts of construction or remodeling debris may want to consider renting a small dumpster or hiring a private hauling company.

During some years (depending on the budget) the Township holds a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day where residents may drop off hazardous items for disposal at no charge. Wayne County also sponsors four drop-off sites per year (usually from April through October) where any County resident with proof of County residency may drop off hazardous waste at no charge. The County rotates its sites between different communities each year and several have already been hosted here in Redford Township. The Township has also sponsored, along with Wayne County, several annual "Electronic Waste Collection Days, in an effort to keep old, unused, or hazardous electronics out of our landfills. Information about available hazardous waste or electronic collection sites is posted on the Township website on the home page and/or the Central Maintenance page, as well as on local cable television stations (Channel 8 on Bright House, Channel 99 on AT&T U-Verse, and Channel 10 on WOW).
If for some reason a resident cannot wait until a scheduled drop-off day or it is at a time of year there are none scheduled, there is a "Wayne County - Resource Recovery Guide (PDF)" available on the Township's Central Maintenance page that provides contact information for companies you can contact directly. Be aware, however, that they will charge you a fee for the disposal of your hazardous items. There is no charge when using a collection site sponsored by Wayne County but you must provide proof you are a Country resident. Call 734-326-3936 for County dates and locations.
Redford Township does not currently offer a branch chipping service, as it was eliminated on May 1, 2010, as part of budget cuts. As an alternative, we suggest that residents who have a large number of branches that need chipping contact a local tree service company that can provide them with this service. Also, the local Redford Chamber of Commerce (phone number 313-535-0960) may have member tree service companies that they can recommend to you.
Another alternative (if you only have a small number of branches, twigs, or shrubs and they are less than 1½ inches in diameter) is to cut them into lengths of 4 feet or less and tie them into bundles (18 inches in diameter) or place them into yard waste receptacles. The bundles or receptacles cannot weigh more than 60 pounds and should be set next to your other yard waste receptacles. Landscape and tree service contractors are responsible for the removal of all tree materials remaining as a result of their work.
Occasionally and unintentionally yard waste has been overlooked for pickup at some homes. It may have been overlooked because a vehicle blocked it from the driver's view or the outside of the can was not marked "Yard Waste". There are also other reasons the yard waste was not collected. All yard waste must be in either brown paper yard waste bags (which are sold at local hardware or retail home stores such as Home Depot, Lowes, etc.) or in trash cans no larger than 35-gallon capacity size with two outside handles. The cans must also clearly be marked "yard waste" on the outside. Under no circumstances may yard waste be placed in plastic bags. Under State, law landfills may not accept yard waste in plastic bags. Also, yard waste will not be taken if you have mixed it with any of the following unacceptable items: stumps, logs, root balls, stones, straws, apples, dirt, or sod. The bags or containers will also not be emptied if they are more than 45 pounds in weight.
Other than it was mistakenly not picked up there may be several reasons why your garbage was not picked up. Below are some possible reasons:
n compliance with Public Act 222 of 2001, be advised of the following. Any resident experiencing an overflow or backup of a sewage disposal system or stormwater system should immediately upon discovery, or in the exercise of reasonable diligence should have discovered, contact the Water Department at 313-387-2670. If it is after normal business hours, contact the Redford Township Police Department at 313-387-2553 and they will contact the Water Department foreman.
You should also file a written claim with the Redford Township Water Department at 12200 Beech Daly, Redford, MI 48239, within 45 days of discovery of the overflow or backup. Failure to provide the required notice will limit your rights under the law. A claim form is available by calling the Water Department at 313-387-2670.
Please note: In order for a claim to be viable, the source of the problem must be the Municipal sewer. Problems caused by your property's plumbing or in your sewer lead are your responsibility.
If you witness an illicit discharge into the stormwater system or witness an individual illegally dumping, you should contact the Wayne County Department of Environment's 24-hour Hotline at 888-223-2363 or on the Wayne County Department of Environment website. Examples of illicit discharges are sanitary wastewater (sewage); septic tank waste; car wash, laundry, and industrial wastewaters; improper disposal of auto and household toxins (such as motor oil and pesticides); spills on roadways and other accidents; and connection to the storm sewer, drain or ditch within State or County right-of-ways.
The taxable value is the value on which property taxes are calculated. It can be found on the property tax statement or by contacting the local assessor.
The millage rate can be found on the property tax statement or by contacting the local treasurer. The millage rate is the rate at which property taxes are levied on the property. A mill is 1/1000 of a dollar. Property taxes are computed by multiplying the taxable value divided by 1,000, then multiplying it by the number of mills levied.
Taxes imposed or billed. The property tax credit is based on taxes levied for the year of the claim regardless of when the taxes are paid.
You can request copies of property tax statements from the Treasurer's Office. Copies cost $1 for properties with 100% homestead. The cost is $5 for mortgage and title companies, management companies, or any property with a 0% homestead. Property tax information is also available through the Redford Township website.
Yes, unless the parcels are rented to someone else. If you are claiming multiple vacant parcels that are adjacent and contiguous, make sure to use the combined taxable value of all parcels for credit computation.
If your property is less than 100% homestead (perhaps you rent a portion of your home or use your home for business), you must subtract the School Operating Tax and any special assessments that were charged from the total taxes levied. Then multiply the balance by the percentage indicated as homestead to compute the new taxes levied amount that can be used for credit computation.
If you believe the homestead percentage on your tax statement is incorrect, please visit the Assessor's page.
If you bought or sold your home, you must prorate your taxes. Complete Part 1 (lines 36 to 42) of the MI-1040CR to determine the taxes that can be claimed. Use only taxes levied in the tax year of the claim, and then prorate taxes based on days of occupancy. You may not claim more than 365 days in total.
The school district code can be found on your property tax statement or by contacting your local tax office.
Most special assessments for drains, sewers, roads, etc., may not be included as property taxes levied. You may include special assessments only if they are billed using a millage rate or are based on taxable value and are either levied in the entire taxing jurisdiction or they are used to provide police, fire, or advanced life support services and are levied township-wide. If you have any questions regarding your special assessments and whether they can be included as taxes levied on your homestead property tax credit claim please email the Tax Department or call 313-387-2611.
Following are some examples of special assessments:
When selling your home, you may need to pay any outstanding special assessments on your home. For payoff amounts, please contact the Building Department at 313-387-2680 and the DPW office at 313-387-2641. The Tax Department does not currently hold any special assessment information for Redford Township.
A homestead is a dwelling that is owner-occupied as their permanent residence. You may not claim a property tax credit on a second home or property that you rent to someone else.
