The City of Taylor Department of Public Works efforts have been streamlined for your convenience. Most services can now be resolved through the Customer Assistance Center – (734) 287-6550 – at City Hall with the following exceptions:

Dump passes are now claimed electronically at the Taylor Compost Station, 16300 Racho Road. Valid identification will still be required however, no more having to deal with tracking down those pesky vouchers. Simply stop in at the Compost Station when you are ready to dump and the gate attendant will assist you from there. Residents are still provided with two free dumps (up to 500 pounds each). Be aware if what you are dumping is over 500 pounds on your first visit both passes will have to be used. Anything over 1,000 pounds will require both passes plus the cost of any overage. 
Rat poison is now available at the Taylor Animal Shelter, 25555 Northline Road (next to the DPW). Valid identification is required.
Lawn bags and trash bags can be purchased directly from the Cashier at City Hall.
Water bills can be paid in person directly to the Cashier at City Hall, placed in the drop box on Pine Street at City Hall or mailed to P.O. Box 298. If paying in person please bring your water bill with you to serve as your paid receipt as copies of water bills will not be provided by the cashier. Paper receipts are provided in the event you do not have your copy with you.
