October 18, 2012 – The fall leaf collection program officially kicks off Monday, October 22 in Heavy Refuse Collection Area B and will proceed through areas C, D and A.
Residents on major streets (see list below) should rake leaves onto the outlawn (between the sidewalk and curb) in front of their homes. Leaves on all other streets in Midland should be raked into the gutter as work crews near your area. Residents are asked to leave at least one foot of gutter space between the leaf pile and the curb to allow a path for water to properly drain from streets.
When the majority of leaves have been collected throughout the city, a final collection round will be announced. Street sweepers will come through neighborhoods once final collection has ended.
Residents may also place leaves in a yard waste bag or bin as an alternative to raking them into the gutter or outlawn area. The City has suspended the regularly required 35-cent per bag sticker for the remainder of the yard waste collection season.
Residents can track the progress of leaf collection crews by calling the Leaf Collection hotline at 989-837-3405, watching the MGTV-96 message board, or visiting the City of Midland website (www.midland-mi.org/publicservices).
