Yard Waste Begins March 25
Yard waste is collected weekly the same day as your normal household rubbish is collected.

Yard waste includes leaves, lawn cuttings, and shrub and tree trimmings. Yard waste must be placed in biodegradable bags or containers of 35 gallons or less that are marked "yard waste".

Reporting Potholes
Michigan's seasonal freeze-thaw cycles create the perfect conditions for potholes to form after snow and ice has melted. Moisture seeps into the pavement, freezes, expands and thaws, creating a gap in the pavement. As vehicles drive over the gap, the pavement weakens leading to a pothole. 

We want to make reporting them easy for you, but there are two things to remember. 

  1. Wayne County maintained roads are Outer Drive, Fort St, Southfield Rd, and Dix Hwy. Please report potholes on those roads to Wayne County or via the County Hotline at 1-888-762-3273
  2. For state roads (I-75), potholes can be reported online on the Michigan Department of Transportation website.
  3. For City maintained roads, please report local potholes here or call DPS at 313-386-9000 ext.2704

The event will be held on Saturday, March 23 from 4-7pm. For more information, please call Maureen Tobin 313-386-1800 ext.1400

What You Can Do About Storm Drains
Spring is nearly here! As the days get longer and the weather warmer, many of us are starting to plan our own property maintenance plans. As part of that plan, consider including cleaning nearby storm drains of debris that may have collected during the winter months? Your efforts in helping to keep pollution from entering our waterways and minimizing the impact on our infrastructure will help everyone.

During your regular spring yard maintenance, also consider the following information. During rain events, water will pick up excess lawn fertilizer, oil from cars, and other pollutants and deposit it into our storm drains. These pipes then lead into the nearest steams or lakes.

Consider the following to minimize our impact on our system and the environment
  • Sweep excess fertilizer, yard clippings, and dirt on your driveway back onto your lawn. Hosing down your driveway sends these items into the storm drains.
  • Never dump motor oil, chemicals, pet waste, leaves or anything else down the storm drain.
