Yellow Bags


Yellow bags are a prepaid service, and are $2.50 per bag for household trash only. They come in a roll of 10 for $25.00 and are available to purchase at the following locations:

  • Beaver Lake IGA, Lachine
  • Neiman’s Family Market, Alpena
  • Perch’s IGA, Alpena
  • Wal-Mart Alpena

Yellow bags must be no more than 35 pounds, and everything must me inside the bag, curbside, and visible to the driver. When beginning yellow bag service call and schedule your first pickup and the day we service your area.   We don’t service every road in Alpena and the surrounding counties, therefore calling first will ensure we service your home. You do not have to have a minimum or a maximum allowable amount, as long as everything is in the bag and at the curb on pickup day.
