[ARCHIVED] Heavy Item & Brush Collection Update

May 26, 2020 – Due to ongoing flood debris collection in flood-damaged areas of the City, regular heavy item and brush collection has been suspended until further notice.

Debris collection crews will continue to patrol areas in which flood damage has been reported to collect flood debris from the curb. There is no restriction on items that are set out for flood debris collection. Residents are asked to place liquid items – paint cans, stain cans, etc. – into a box or other container if available and set it apart from other flood debris.

Volumes of flood debris at the curb are very heavy and crews are working seven days a week to provide collection. Crews will return to affected neighborhoods to provide multiple rounds of collection until all flood debris is collected. Due to the ever-changing nature of this task, it is difficult to predict when crews will collection in a particular area for collection.  Please be patient as crews will make their way to all affected areas.

Residents who have not received flood damage are asked not to set heavy items or brush out for collection until further notice. It is unknown at this time when regular heavy item collection will resume.

The Midland Sanitary Landfill is currently open during its regular operating hours, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m., as well as Saturday from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. until further notice for residential and commercial customers to dispose of debris, trash, and yard waste. Customers accessing the Landfill will be required to show proof of Midland County residency. Debris generated outside of Midland County will not be accepted. Due to the high anticipated volume of customers accessing the Landfill, wait times may be significant.

City of Midland refuse, yard waste, and recycling collection continue as scheduled at this time. As a reminder, stickers are now required on all yard waste bags and bins.  Bin stickers may be purchased by printing and completing the form available at Printed forms are also available outside the Municipal Service Center, 4811 N. Saginaw Road.  Forms and payments can be placed into the secure drop box at the Service Center for faster processing. Yard waste bin stickers cannot be renewed online or over the phone at this time.
