Question of the Month:

Does Oakfield Township have a yearly cleanup day?

Oakfield Township does not do a yearly cleanup day. In the past when there was a cleanup day, it actually caused more blight in resident's yards due to people "saving" items to dispose of. Please make sure to keep your yard clear of all junk items. The zoning official is out writing tickets as needed.
