Just a reminder that it is the responsibility of the property owner/lessee to clear sidewalks of snow and/or ice within 24 hours following a snowfall, sleet or freezing rain.
Once cleared this maintenance shall include the use of salt, melting agent or enough sand to make the sidewalk reasonably safe for pedestrian traffic.
In the event of a Snow Emergency (declared by the City Manager and the DPW Superintendent) vehicles must be removed from all City streets to allow for plowing by both City and Oakland County crews.
Notification of a declared Snow Emergency will be made through local news stations, the City website www.southlyonmi.org as well as the City sign in McHattie Park.

City Residents can now recycle unwanted clothing, shoes, accessories and other household discards such as kitchenware, tools, toys and books with a free residential curbside pickup service on the same day as your weekly trash and recycling service.
This service is provided by Simple Recycling and is an easy, free and convenient way to keep clothing, textiles and reusable household goods out of our landfills.
Green plastic bags and labels are available at City Hall 335 S. Warren Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 5:00. Whenever residents use the green Simple Recycling bags or labels, the collecting driver will leave another bag for residents to use the next time.
Please place the green bags and/or tagged items separate from your regular recycling bin and trash containers. This makes it easier for the driver to spot donations. Simple Recycling will collect the bags and recycle their contents for reuse!

    • In the event that a household has their Simple Recycling green bags missed on a collection day
