2022 Leaf Collection News

The start date for curbside FINAL collection will be Monday, November 28! Crews will begin collection in AREA B, then proceed to Areas C, D, and A.

Friday, December 9, is the FINAL day for collecting blue yard waste bins and paper compost bags.

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

Yard waste is collected weekly in blue yard waste bins or in paper compost bags on your refuse day.  All yard waste must be contained in bins or paper bags.  Yard waste is not collected in plastic garbage bags. Collection stickers are not required on all bins and bags.

Leaves will continued to be collected during your weekly refuse day in yard waste bins or paper compost bags until the end of the yard waste collection season.  The end of collection season is weather dependent and will be announced at a later date.  

The Landfill will accept yard waste year round. Midland County residents may dispose of up to three cubic yards of refuse, demolition debris, scrap metal, or yard waste once per month.  The final Saturday that the Landfill is open is November 26, 2022 from 8:30 a.m. to noon..

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 3, 2022) 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.
