Fall Leaf Collection Program

How the Program Works
The City of Midland's Fall Leaf Collection program begins when a significant amount of leaves have fallen throughout the city.  The actual start date is based on weather conditions that promote leaf fall.  A collection schedule using the Heavy Item and Brush Collection areas is used to determine where crews are collecting.  Residents rake leaves into the gutter leaving at least one foot of gutter space between the leaf pile and the curb.  Do not mix brush or refuse in with the leaf piles.  A final collection round is announced on the hotline and government message board.  Any leaves that have not been collected after the final round, must be bagged in paper compost bags or placed in the blue yard waste bin.
