2017 Leaf Collection Update: Yard waste collection ends Friday, December 15, 2017
Please read the following for information about how the collection process works.
Fall leaf collection from the street will be announced when there is a significant leaf fall throughout the City. A collection schedule using the Heavy Item and Brush Collection areas A, B, C, and D is used to determine the collection areas for the leaf crews. Leaf collection will begin in area B then proceed to areas C, D, and A. Residents can rake leaves to the street in front of their home until final curbside collection has been completed for the season in their area. Raking leaves to the street sooner will not start bulk curbside collection earlier.
Residents can track the progress of leaf collection crews by the updates below, calling the Leaf Collection hotline at 989-837-3405, or watching the MGTV-188 message board (AT&T U-Verse subscribers can watch the MCTV Network through Channel 99).
FALL FREE begins the first Monday in October (October 2, 2017) through the remainder of the yard waste collection season. During this free period, 40-cent per bag stickers and the annual yard waste bin stickers are not required. Crews will begin collection from the street when there has been a significant leaf fall throughout the City. Raking leaves to the street will not start the bulk curbside collection any earlier. Yard waste bags and bins are collected on your weekly refuse day.

AREAS A, B, C, and D - Final Leaf Collection from the Street is Complete Citywide Leaves can NO longer be raked into the streets. Any leaves remaining must be placed in yard waste bins or kraft paper compost bags that are collected on your weekly refuse day. No stickers are required for the remainder of the 2017 yard waste collection season. Final collection of yard waste bins and bags will be completed on Friday, December 15th. We want to remind residents that due to freezing temperatures, yard bin contents may freeze, not allowing for the contents to completely empty. We encourage residents to keep bins in the garage until collection day in order to help prevent this problem. Yard waste collection in bins and bags will resume on the first Monday in April 2018. Please remember that no leaves are allowed in the street for spring clean-up. This is a service only provided in the fall of the year.
