DEARBORN — The city’s two separate programs to collect loose leaves and bagged leaves from in front of residential properties are both ending the week of December 10-14, with the last collection on each neighborhood’s trash day.
The city is encouraging residents to rake their leaves now for pickup the week of December 3-7 and December 10-14.
Weather conditions may change the loose leaf collection schedule. Check the loose leaf collection schedule on cityofdearborn.org or call the Leaf Hotline at 313-943-2444 to know where crews will be in each neighborhood on trash days.
The city’s second program, the curbside collection of bagged or containerized leaves, also ends the week of December 10-14. Pickup is guaranteed if the leaves are bagged or containerized. Pickup is on each neighborhood trash day.
Afterwards, the city’s trash contractor cannot pick up bagged leaves or bagged yard waste. They can’t be picked up again until March 2019, when the curbside collection of yard waste begins again.
Otherwise, residents can take them to the Dearborn Public Works (DPW) Department yard on the third Saturday of each month for disposal. The next scheduled DPW yard day is Saturday, December 15. It is open 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
