Dearborn Police Issue Warning to Andiamo Over Misuse of Bike Trail

Saturday, December 10th, 2016

The Rouge River Gateway Trail extension, opened in Dearborn just last month, was made for walkers, runners and bicyclists.

The Andiamo restaurant, 21400 Michigan Ave., apparently has no concern for anyone’s safety and is using the path to park cars and use as a shortcut road to get to an overflow lot owned by the City of Dearborn.

Dearborn Police visited the restaurant yesterday evening warning the restaurant to stop using the new walkway as a parking lot and road. No tickets were issued, despite these photographs clearly showing the damage.

No word yet whether the restaurant is going to abide by the order or if it plans to repair the new grass its employees damaged driving cars over it.


Bagged Leaves Collection Ends Week of Dec. 12-16

Thursday, December 1st, 2016

yard-waste-containers(the City of Dearborn issued a correction to its press release today, Dec. 2, 2016. The new date for last collection is now Dec. 12-16.)

If you still have piles of leaves in front of your home at the curb that the city didn’t collect, you have until the week of Dec. 5-9 to bag them and put them curbside.

Residents with a Monday trash district will get their last curbside yard waste pickup for 2016 on Monday, Dec. 12. Residents with a Tuesday trash pickup will be served by their last curbside yard waste collection on Tuesday, Dec. 13. The pattern will continue through Friday, Dec. 16.

The curbside collection program that is ending the week of Dec. 12-16 is separate from the collection of loose leaves that are raked into the street.

The loose leaf collection program – where residents can simply rake loose leaves into the street for the city to collect – was set to end on Friday, Dec. 2.

For the curbside collection program, put yard waste into yard waste paper bags or your own 20 – 32 gallon container. Mark your container with a yard waste sticker. Stickers are available free at Dearborn libraries and the Dearborn Administrative Center.

Do not use plastic bags or cardboard boxes. They will not be picked up.

Unbundled or improperly bundled brush requires a special pickup. Call 943-2433 for fees.

Curbside collection of bagged or containerized yard waste begins again the week of March 13, 2017.
