Yard waste collection begins the first Monday in April. Yard waste is collected curbside on your regular weekly refuse collection day. Yard waste must be placed in Kraft paper compost bags or City of Midland blue 95-gal bins before being set at the curb. Bags must weigh under 50 lbs. and the lid on the bins must close. Acceptable materials include: leaves, grass clippings, garden waste, small twigs and branches.
Residents can purchase annual blue yard waste bin and compost stickers online by clicking here. Annual stickers can be purchased in person with cash, check VISA or MasterCard at the Municipal Service Center (4811 N. Saginaw Rd.) or at the Treasurer’s Office in City Hall. Annual stickers cost $40 for the first sticker and $17 for each additional sticker at one residence. The orange stickers for compost bags are available online, at the Municipal Service Center (4811 N. Saginaw) and at Ace Hardware, Family Fare, Gilroy’s Hardware, Kroger, Lowe’s, and Meijer.
Leaves can ONLY be raked into the street during the fall leaf collection season. Once an area has received final curbside collection in the fall, any remaining leaves must be in City blue yard waste bins or paper compost bags to be collected PRIOR to the end of the yard waste collection season. Yard waste collection typically concludes by the end of November depending on weather conditions. No stickers are required after the first Monday in October.
There is NO collection of leaves in the street in the spring.
