National Fire Prevention Month
Energizer Battery and the International Association of Fire Chiefs and the City of Ishpeming Fire Department are encouraging everyone to take time to make home safety a priority. On November 6, when you set your clock back for daylight saving time, use the extra hour to take a lifesaving action.
Did you know 71 percent of smoke alarms which failed to operate had missing, disconnected or dead batteries? A home with non-functional detectors is dangerous and puts lives at risk.
The city of Ishpeming Fire Department is giving out a limited number of 9Volt Energizer Batteries free of charge for use in smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. The 9Volt batteries will be available at the Ishpeming City Hall during regular business hours while supplies last.
Limit of 4 9Volt batteries per family. You do not have to be a resident of the city to receive the batteries.

Effective January 1, 2016:
In an effort to keep garbage and utility rates low, The City of Ishpeming has entered into a Dual-Stream Recycling Agreement with the Marquette County Solid Waste Management Authority (MCSWMA). North Country Disposal will continue to be the City’s designated hauler, and the current collection schedule will not change.
What does this change mean for residents? Prior to collection, recyclable materials must be divided into two separate streams – fiber materials and rigid materials – which will be picked up on alternating weeks at the same time as curbside garbage collection.
Fiber materials include: papers, newspapers, magazines, envelopes, books, cardboard materials, paper bags and other similar items. Staples and plastic envelope windows may be included in the fiber stream.
Rigid materials are: plastic, metal and glass items, and include everything from food and drink containers to CD cases and hard plastic toys. Labels can remain on these containers, but residents are asked to please empty all containers and to separate any caps from their respective containers.
Items that can’t be recycled curbside include foams, films, photo paper, food- or grease-coated items, bubble envelopes and organic materials. Additional information about the recycling program, including a full schedule, can be found online at https://ishpemingcity.org/departments/public-works/recycling/ and www.mcswma.com.
All recyclable materials must be clean of food residue. Materials are to be placed curbside loosely in hard-walled plastic bins, baskets, or totes. Containers used for recyclable collection must be easily differentiated from those used for refuse collection. Do not use plastic bags as recycling containers, and do not place rigid materials for pick-up in paper bags.
The dual stream collection schedule for 2016 is as follows:
The Dual Stream Recycling Program does not officially go into effect until January 1, 2016, however we hope residents will take advantage of this program and sort their recyclables beginning the week of December 14, 2015, which is a Rigids materials week.
What can’t be recycled must go to the landfill. The City encourages residents to divert as much as possible from the landfill, through recycling, composting and re-use. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter. If you have any questions, please contact City Hall (906) 485-1091 or Public Works at (906) 486-9371/ (906) 486-6181. See www.ishpemingcity.org for financial information required by state law to be made available to the public. A paper copy is available for review at City Hall.← Older posts Newer posts →
