Leaf Collection

Residents are advised to bag leaves falling early, until curbside collection starts

Even though it's summer weather, the leaves are falling fast. Residents may want to rake leaves and put them in compost bags. They can be set at the curb on trash day or kept until the City begins collecting leaves. For Area A, north of 8 Mile, that's Oct. 30 and Nov. 27; for Area B, south of 8 Mile, it's Nov. 6 and Dec. 4. At that time, residents can rake leaves into the street the weekend before their scheduled pick-up.
