What We Do

The Sterling Township Highway department is responsible for maintaining roads and culverts outside of city limits. For the safety of road users, please do not blow grass clippings onto the roadways. Wet grass becomes very slippery and presents a safety hazard for pedestrians, bicyclists and motorcyclists. Remember to pay attention to all signs pertaining to construction work along our roads. Slow down and stay off your cellphone in all workzones.

Snow Removal

The Sterling Township highway department works hard to maintain roads and keep them free from snow and ice in the winter. Please contact our office with any concerns that you have.

Yard Waste

Yard waste is picked up seasonally from April- September. All yard waste will be picked up on Monday. Yard waste must be ready for pickup by 6:00am. Small sticks, branches, and leaves must be put in yard waste bags or in containers marked with an “X”. Containers heavier than 40 pounds will not be picked up. If a homeowner decides to trim a few branches from their trees, they must be cut up into 4′ to 5′ lengths. We will only pick up large piles of branches due to storm damage. Example, if the homeowner decides to take down a tree by themselves or hire it done, it is the responsibility of the homeowner to dispose of the debris. There will be no burning allowed on the township right of way including the ditches.
