We provide access to high volumes of City water for pool filling and hydro mulch services.

Minimum Fees*
Residents: $ 50.00
Non-Residents/Contractors: $150.00

*Minimum fees shall be paid in advance.

After normal working hours (Monday – Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.) a charge of $55.00 for overhead and administrative costs plus the cost of water must be paid in advance.

All water shall be metered and only City personnel will be allowed to operate hydrants and valves.

Recycling

For your convenience, we offer weekly residential curbside recycling collection through a contract with Cart-Right, LLC.

A Recycling Guide is provided to help you through the selection process, which has been recently been changed to "single-stream" recycling to make the process easier.  We update the guide annually to keep up with this fast changing market.

The City of Fremont is also fortunate enough to have another recycling business in town called Recycling for Newaygo County.  They are located 113 E. Cherry Street.  Please check out their website by clicking on the link below.

 

Refuse

For your convenience, we offer weekly curbside residential refuse collection through our contract with Allied Waste Services. In addition, Allied Waste collects appliances, bulky items and yard wastes based on a pay-to-throw sticker program.

Other City programs include:

  • Christmas tree chipping
  • Fall leaf collection
  • Monthly curbside bulk brush pick-up from spring through fall

All of the brush, chips and leaves are composted at the City’s Wastewater Treatment Plant.  The resulting compost is mixed with topsoil and used by the City for parks and parkway repair and construction projects.

Rules for Refuse Collection/Resource Recovery Service

Christmas Tree Chipping

We will pick up, chip and recycle Christmas trees during the first two full weeks of January. Trees must be placed at the curb (not in the street) without bags or wrapping. (Please insert picture of Christmas tree).

Refuse Pick-up

We are pleased to offer our residents a choice in how they prepare their refuse for pick-up: rollout refuse carts or bag service. Please keep in mind that the rollout carts have a neater appearance at the curb and prevent most animals from scavenging in your garbage.

During the first two weeks of January and the first two weeks of July each year, the property owner of the collection address may elect to change service from a roll-out cart to mixed-refuse bags or vice-versa by notifying the City Offices.  Changes are only allowed during this two-week period.

Weed Violations

Our year-round weed ordinance states that weeds and grass cannot be higher than nine inches. On or before March 1 of each year, we will:

  • Prepare outline of weed map
  • Run weed violation notice in newspaper of general circulation in community

In the event of violation, we will mail a five-day notice letter to the violator. If the violation is not addressed, the Public Works department will mow. For a first offense, it will be turned over to the Police department and charged a civil fine. Residents will be invoiced the actual cost of clean-up plus 100%. If not paid, these costs will become a lien against the premises and will be added as a special assessment to your property taxes.

Yard Waste

Yard waste may be deposited at the Public Works yard drop off site, located at 805 W. Oak Street, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. Yard wastes include miscellaneous waste material resulting from landscaping or maintaining the landscaping of a home (grass, weeds, houseplants, garden wastes, etc.). From April 1st to November 15th, yard waste may also be placed in a specially marked yard waste bag on your regular refuse pick-up day. From mid-October to mid-November, residents may rake their fall leaf drop into the street for bulk pick-up by the City as noted in the Leaf Collection section. No yard waste may be placed in a 65-gallon refuse cart.

Brush

We will remove brush without charge the first Monday of each month from April through October. Limbs must be no more than 3" in diameter, and brush must be stacked with the cut end at curbside. Residents throughout the City must have their brush placed curbside by 7:00 a.m. Brush is not to placed curbside any earlier than the Friday before the appointed Monday.
