Seasonal Yard Waste Collection to Begin Week of
April 15, 2019

Residents can begin setting out leaves, grass clippings and other yard waste materials at the curbside on a weekly basis beginning the week of April 15, 2019. Materials must be placed on the curb on the normal service day for recycling and city trash collection.  
Yard waste must be placed in paper bags. Brush and tree trimmings must be less than 4 feet in length and less than 2 inches in diameter and bundled with string or twine. All bags and bundles must weigh 30 pounds or less.
Residents may NOT use City trash or other plastic bags or trash carts for yard waste removal. Also, due to health and safety concerns, the use of rigid containers to collect yard waste is not allowed. Disposal of beehives or wasp nests in yard waste is prohibited, as they are a danger to our yard waste collection staff.
For more information, contact the City of Lansing, Capital Area Recycling & Trash at 517-483-4400 or [email protected]. More information is available at
