GFL Environmental has announced that they will resume yard waste collection beginning April 14 on residents designated trash collection day. Due to the temporary suspension in yard waste collection, crews may take more than one day to pick up yard waste in your neighborhood. 

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. 

Yard waste will be collected on residents’ regular garbage collection day through December 4. For more information, contact the Public Works Department at (248) 796-4860 or GFL directly at (844) 464-3587.
