Please read the following for information about how the collection process works.

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 via 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 (October 4, 2021) 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. Crews will begin collection from the street when there has been a significant leaf fall throughout the City. Raking leaves to the street will not start the bulk curbside collection any earlier. Yard waste bags and bins are collected on your weekly refuse day.
