Fall Free Yard Waste Collection Ends December 17

December 3, 2021 – 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. Yard waste collection in bins and paper compost bags will continue until Friday, December 17.  

The final round of curbside leaf collection within the City of Midland is currently underway and will soon be completed. 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 by December 17.  Any leaves remaining in the street after final leaf collection must be placed in compost bags or bins. No leaves are permitted in the street once final collection has occurred. 

Yard waste collection stickers are not required on bins or bags for the remainder of the 2021 collection season. Yard waste remaining after December 17 can be taken to the Landfill or saved until Spring Free yard waste collection begins in April 2022. The City does not collect leaves from the street in the spring.    

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 2022.
