2018 Yard Waste Collection Schedule
Here are some key dates and changes to keep in mind with the 2018 Yard Waste Collection Schedule:
- April 2 – November 30: Bags or cans only, 50 lbs. limit on each. No tags needed. Do not place yard debris in street. Place all branches under 4 feet in length and under 2 feet in diameter in a compost bag or can that's marked “compost” or “yard waste.” Stickers are available at the DPW office, 3238 Bacon Street.
- Chipper Service: The Chipper Service will start the 3rd Monday of the month between April and November. Chipper Service is for branches over 4 feet in length and 2-4 inches in diameter.
We ask that you please call ahead to the DPW at 248-658-3490, or submit a request through our city website's "Contact Us" page in advance to reserve a spot whenever you do need the Chipper Service. Doing so will help the DPW know approximately how many stops are needed, so they can schedule appropriately.
- October 1 – November 30: Fall Leaf Pick Up Schedule
Leaves only may be raked to the curb or placed in paper yard waste bags or cans marked “compost” or “yard waste.” Stickers are available at the DPW office, 3238 Bacon Street. Again, no tags are needed.
Final pick up day for leaves and yard debris starts December 1, 2018.
- December 14 – March 30, 2019: Off Season
Yard waste in paper yard bags may be taken, at no charge, to the SOCRRA station at 995 Coolidge Highway in Troy (across from Meijer gas station).
