Spring Cleaning

The weather has been getting warmer in the Warrendale neighborhood. Many folks are starting to spruce up their lawns; leaving their brown yard waste bags at the curb for collection. Ordinarily, this would not be a problem.

However, the City of Detroit Department of Public Works does not start its weekly yard waste collection (e.g., leaves, grass clippings, twigs) until the first week in May. The brown bags that are at the curb will not be picked up until your Courville collection day during the week of April 28 – May 2.

Yard waste can be dropped off at the Southfield Yard (12255 Southfield Fwy.). Residents can make one trip to the yard daily to dispose of yard waste and bulk trash. Also, please note that yard waste that has been placed in plastic bags will not be picked up at any time and cannot be taken to the Southfield Yard.

For detailed information regarding yard waste collection and bulk trash collection, please visit the City of Detroit’s website.
