Yard Waste Services

The seasonal collection of leaves, grass, and other organic yard waste will begin the week of March 31, 2014.  Place materials at the curb on your normal collection day.

Leaves, grass clippings, tree trimmings and other organic yard waste materials are picked up weekly on a seasonal basis, usually between April and November (see holiday hours and events page for current dates.) Residents may place as much material at the curbside as needed, provided it complies with the guidelines listed below:

Option #1

Place materials in paper yard waste bags. Paper bags are available at many local grocery and convenience stores. Bags weighing over 30 pounds will not be collected.

Option #2

Bundle brush and tree trimmings securely with string or twine (NO wire). Branches must be less than 4 feet in length and 2 inches in diameter. 

PLEASE DO NOT USE CITY OF LANSING BLUE BAGS, BLUE CARTS OR PRIVATE WASTE HAULER CARTS FOR YARD CLIPPINGS.
