[ARCHIVED] 2019 Curbside Leaf Collection Begins November 4 in Area B

Leaves 2 450x335

October 25, 2019 – The autumn weather in Midland has led to a late leaf fall again this year, which has delayed the start of the 2019 curbside leaf collection program. On Thursday, October 31 and Friday, November 1, City crews will test leaf collection equipment in areas of the City that have experienced a significant leaf fall. Collection will officially begin on Monday, November 4 in Area B, then proceed to Areas C, D, and A.

Residents in Area B should prepare their leaves for collection at this time; however, residents in all areas can start raking leaves to the street now. Citizens should leave a one-foot gutter space between the leaf pile and the curb to allow a path for water to properly drain from the street and avoid placing brush, sticks, branches, or refuse into curbside leaf piles, as this creates a safety hazard for crews and equipment. Remember: Residents may also place fall yard waste in yard bags or bins at the curb on their regular trash collection day. Annual bin stickers or 40-cent bag stickers are not required through the end of the 2019 yard waste collection season. 

Residents on the following major streets should rake leaves onto the outlawn between the sidewalk and curb in front of their homes: Ashman Street from the Circle to Main, Bay City Road, Buttles Street, Eastman Avenue, George and Cronkright Streets between Indian and Ellsworth, Indian Street, Isabella Street, Lyon Road, Main Street, Patrick Road from Indian to Waldo, Rodd Street, and Saginaw Road.

Once collection begins, residents will be able to track the crews’ progress by calling the Leaf Collection Hotline at 989-837-3405; watching the MGTV-188 message board or AT&T U-verse Channel 99; by following the City’s social media channels @CityofMidlandMI on Facebook and Twitter; or by visiting www.cityofmidlandmi.gov/leafupdate.

For questions or more information, contact the Department of Public Services at 989-837-6900.
