[ARCHIVED] Curbside Leaf Collection Begins October 31 in Area B

October 28, 2022 – The City of Midland has announced that its annual curbside leaf collection program will begin for the 2022 season on Monday, October 31 in Area B. Collection will officially begin 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. View the map below for a map of collection areas (areas are the same as residents' Heavy Item & Brush Collection).

To prepare leaves for collection: 

  • Leave one foot of gutter space between the leaf pile and the curb to allow a path for water to properly drain from the street; 
  • Avoid placing brush, sticks, branches, or refuse into curbside leaf piles, as this creates a safety hazard for crews and equipment
  • Place fall yard waste (sticks, pumpkins, etc.) in yard bags or bins at the curb on refuse collection day. Annual bin stickers or 40-cent bag stickers are not required through the end of the 2022 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, Waldo Avenue from Bay City Road to Henry, Rodd Street, and Saginaw Road.

Residents whom live on a street that is currently under construction should also rake their leaves onto their outlawns until construction is complete.

Once collection begins, residents will be able to track the crews’ progress by viewing a daily updated collection map at www.cityofmidlandmi.gov/leafupdate. Residents may also find updates by calling the Leaf Collection Hotline at 989-837-3405 or by following the City’s social media channels @CityofMidlandMI on Facebook and Twitter.

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