(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.
