Leaf Collection Updates

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 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.  Yard waste bags and bins are collected on your weekly refuse day.

Curbside Collection

Posting Date                                                    Collection Update
September 2016

FALL FREE will begin October 3rd and will continue 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.

Residents may rake leaves to the street until final curbside collection has been complete in their area for the season. Remember to leave at least one foot of clear gutter space between leaf pile and the curb. This allows water to get to the catch basin and will allow a more thorough collection by crews. Raking leaves to the street sooner will not start bulk curbside collection earlier. Curbside collection of leaves will begin after significant leaf fall has occurred city-wide, which is typically late October. For the safety of our crews, avoid putting brush such as sticks in your leaf piles.
