Dearborn Extends Yard Waste Pickup to Dec. 17

Tuesday, November 30th, 2010

Last Pickup for Leaves Raked in Street is Friday, Dec. 3

The City of Dearborn is reminding residents that curbside yard collection will take place on trash days until Friday, Dec. 17, weather permitting. That means residents can place yard waste, including leaves, in proper containers on scheduled trash days through the week of Dec. 13-17.

Yard waste pickup continues through Dec. 17, weather permitting.

The 2010 City of Dearborn calendar states that the curbside collection of yard waste will end on Friday, Dec. 3, but that information is outdated.

The City extended the curbside yard waste collection season when it chose a new trash, recycling and yard waste collection contractor in the summer. The extended season is part of the City’s expanded curbside service made possible by the new contract.

Residents are reminded that yard waste must be properly bundled. It also must be in a properly marked 32-gallon container or paper landscape bag. Yard waste in plastic bags will not be picked up.

The City’s loose leaf collection of leaves raked into the street is scheduled to end Friday, Dec. 3.

However, residents may still bag leaves and place them in proper containers on their trash day the week of Dec. 13-17 as part of the curbside collection service.
