DEARBORN – The city of Dearborn is reminding its residents that loose leaf collections will continue through the week of December 9-13. The last pickup for every neighborhood is scheduled on the trash day for that neighborhood that week.
The city is advising that weather conditions may change the schedule. Note that it is unlikely that loose leaves raked into the street will be picked up every week in front of individual homes. Not every home will be served the week of December 9-13. The last collection for some areas will be the week of December 2-6.
The city is strongly advising its residents not put loose leaves in the street after their trash day on the week of December 9-13. To hear the schedule, residents may call the Leaf Hotline at 313-943-2444 or visit www.cityofdearborn.org to view the schedule.
Residents should bag leaves instead to ensure they are collected. The service to pick up bagged or containerized leaves also ends on residents’ particular trash days the week of December 9-13.
Bagging or putting leaves in approved containers is the best method to ensure leaves are picked up promptly. Residents are being told to use yard waste paper bags or 20-32 gallon containers with a city of Dearborn yard waste sticker on the lid and set them on their easement on their particular trash day by 7 a.m. Residents should not put any leaves out after the week of Dec. 9-13.
Free yard waste stickers are available at the Dearborn Administrative Center, 16901 Michigan Ave., and at the Esper and Bryant branch libraries. (Henry Ford Centennial Library is temporarily closed for renovations). Leaves in plastic bags or in cardboard boxes will not be picked up.
