Due to weather conditions, the city of Southfield will extend the collection of yard waste on residents’ designated trash collection day through Friday, December 17. Depending upon the amount of yard waste in each neighborhood, collection may not take place on residents’ regular trash collection day.

Yard waste includes leaves, grass clippings, branches, brush and other organic material only. Branches and brush refuse must be placed with the cut ends towards the curb on the regular trash collection day. Other yard waste must be placed in approved paper yard waste bags or in a rigid container clearly marked ‘Yard Waste.’ Yard waste in plastic bags will not be accepted.

Branches placed at the curb will be removed by workers with brush chippers. Depending upon the amount of branches, it may take longer than the designated trash collection day to dispose of them.
