Yard Waste

Yard waste is collected on the weekly trash collection day from the last Monday of March through the second week of December (weather permitting). Yard waste should be placed in up to 35-gallon cans marked with a yard waste sticker or in paper compost bags. Yard waste stickers can be requested by emailing Public Service or calling (734) 466-2655.  Disposal of yard waste after the scheduled collection has ended must be taken to the city dump located at 32700 Glendale.  VIEW MAP
