Safe Harbor Recycling to join Springfield Farmers’ Market

Drop off Electronics, Scrap Metal, Almost Anything with a Plug, & Rechargeable Batteries at the Springfield Farmers’ Market starting Saturday, June 29th from 10am – 2 pm, then monthly on every fourth Sunday of the month until the market closes in the fall (July 27th, Aug. 24thd, & Sept. 28th). Safe Harbor Recycling is committed to removing the barriers to recycling by providing free recycling to residents and businesses for Hard-to-Recycle items. Not everything is trash. Some household items are difficult to recycle and that is why they end up in the landfill.

Hard-to-Recycle Items include computers, electronics, bulky metal items, appliances, almost anything with a plug (fee for tube televisions and monitors), and rechargeable batteries (laptop to truck).
The Recycling collection site will be near the entrance to the Springfield Farmers Market in the parking lot located at 12000 Davisburg Road, Davisburg, MI 48350.

Tell your family, friends and neighbors to clean out the basement and garage and let Safe Harbor Recycling tackle the hard to get rid of stuff! Use social media or emails to get the word out and pass on our recycling flyer as well. Please call Patty from Safe Harbor Recycling at 248-240-4899 to schedule a free pick-up of appliances, exercise equipment, BBQ grill or any number of items from our list, from one box to garage full. Check out Facebook page at Safe Harbor Recycling for more local recycling information. Thank you for supporting recycling in your community.

Springfield Township Parks & Recreation Millage Renewal Facts

*Springfield Township Parks and Recreation has an upcoming millage renewal proposal on the August 5th primary election ballot.

 

*Springfield Township residents will be asked to vote on the following: “The  previously voted .75 mill($0.75 per $1,000 of taxable value) increase in the constitutional tax limitation on the amount of taxes upon all taxable property within the Charter Township of Springfield, which last resulted in a levy of .75mill, be renewed at .75 mill and levied for a period of ten (10) years from 2014 through 2023, inclusive for the purpose of providing funds for  developing, maintaining and operating the parks, preserves, recreational sites, facilities, trails, programs, and services managed and/or owned by the Township.  If approved, the levy will raise in the first year approximately $420,000.00”

 

*In the last four years the Parks and Recreation Department has been able to make many improvements, continue valued events and programs and complete needed repairs – in large part due to the millage.  Below is a  sample of some of those items:

   ~New sport court material for the Athletic Court at Mill Pond Park and improvements to the Hart Community Center.

   ~New playscape equipment and two new ball fields at the Shiawassee Basin Preserve

   ~Expanded trails, access & signage in the Parks

   ~Continued focus on critical conservation efforts.

 

*A home valued at $200,000 with an assessed value of $100,000 would pay $75 per year.

 

*In order to vote in the August 5th primary election, a resident must be registered to vote by Monday,  July 7, 2014.  Persons that expect to be away from the polls may request an application for an absentee ballot from the Clerk’s office at (248) 846-6510.

 

How the Funds would be used:

*Management, stewardship, and maintenance of all  facilities and park properties (647+ acres) including a very rare and ecologically sensitive prairie fen complex.

*Continuation of recreation programs that include baseball leagues; basketball leagues; senior programs; special events like Easter Egg Hunt; Holiday Lunch with Santa, Davisburg Heritage Festival, safety courses such as Boater’s Safety, Hunter’s Safety; Camps like Team Reptile Camp and Enrichment classes like Lego Robotics, Karate, Strengthen and Tone, and many more.

*Mill Pond Park: 5.5 acre park featuring the Hart Community Center; Mill Pond beach; picnic pavilion; playground area; outdoor tennis, basketball, sand volleyball and shuffleboard courts; horseshoe pits; perimeter pathway for walking; accessible fishing pier.

*Shiawassee Basin Preserve: 514 acre park featuring nature trails, baseball fields, playground area and  picnic pavilion.
