2022 yard waste collection begins the week of April 4. Yard waste collection will be picked up on the same day as your bulk items. Yard waste will be collected a biweekly basis until December 23.
1. Residents can place grass clippings, leaves, and small twigs that are no more than two inches in diameter in biodegradable paper bags on their bi-weekly scheduled bulk collection day.
2. Branches and twigs that are up to four feet in length and no more than four inches in diameter should be bundled and tied securely and placed at the curb line.
3. Individual bundles should not weigh more than 60 pounds.
4. When placing bagged yard waste at the curb, it should be at least six feet from the city garbage container.
5. The City’s contractors will not collect yard waste in plastic bags. Failure to place yard waste in paper bags can result in a fine of $200; similarly placing your garbage container at the curbside too early or keeping it at the curbside after the day of pickup can result in a fine of $300.
For text message reminders of bulk and garbage dates, text your street address to sign up for weekly trash & recycling reminders to 313-800-7905.

Lead Service Line Replacement Program
The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) estimates there are more than 80,000 lead service lines delivering water to homes in Detroit. In the city of Detroit, lead service lines are most likely to be found in single family homes built before 1945.
The water leaving the treatment plants that serve the city of Detroit does not contain lead, but lead can be released into drinking water from corrosion in lead service lines and household plumbing that contains lead. The water provided to DWSD customers contains a corrosion inhibitor to reduce corrosion of lead and other pipe materials into drinking water. If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health and developmental problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Since 2018, DWSD has been working to verify lead service lines and replace them as part of the Asset Management Program.
