We are finally done with winter and green grass is right around the corner. You can start cleaning up your yards and putting your yard waste out for pickup on
Monday, April 1.
Yard waste includes plant material such as leaves, grass clippings, small twigs, prunings, shrub clippings, garden materials, old potting soil, pumpkins, dirt incidental to minor plantings or edging of lawns, small shrubs with dirt ball removed, branches, brush, flowers, roots, wood waste, and other material commonly thrown away in the course of maintaining yards and gardens. This includes sod and other biodegradable matter. This does not include soil, any garbage, food, plastic, synthetic fibers, lumber, human, or animal waste.
All bundles of yard waste are not to exceed 4 feet in length, must be bundled using string, cannot exceed 18 inches around and cannot weigh more than 60 pounds.
Place yard waste into a paper yard waste bag or reusable container no larger than 35 gallons. Yard waste placed in plastic bags will be left uncollected by Waste Management.
Free, self-adhesive yard waste stickers can be obtained from the Novi Civic Center.
