December 13, 2019 – With winter weather just around the corner, it’s time to trade in leaf rakes for snow shovels – and that means the end of yard waste collection for the year!
Bulk curbside leaf collection within the City of Midland is now complete. Yard waste collection in bins and Kraft paper compost bags will continue until Friday, December 20.
Residents who wish to dispose of any remaining leaves or yard waste should place items into Kraft paper compost bags or blue City yard waste bins and set them at the curb on their refuse collection day. Any leaves remaining in the street after final leaf collection need to be placed in compost bags or bins and set out on residents’ refuse collection day. Yard waste collection stickers are not required on bins or bags for the remainder of the 2019 collection season.
Please note that yard waste can become frozen in yard waste bins if kept outside during freezing temperatures and cannot be emptied by City equipment. Residents may want to consider keeping yard waste bins in their garages if possible to help prevent freezing.
The City will resume yard waste collection on the first Monday in April 2020.
