DEARBORN – Dearborn’s 2020 curbside yard waste program kicked off on the week of March 9-13 and will last through the week of December 7-11.
Beginning the week of March 9, residents can put yard waste in properly marked containers at the curb on their trash collection day.
Residents are reminded to place the yard waste materials in the proper containers at least three feet away from their trash cart and recycling cart. Yard waste cannot be placed in the street.
Acceptable containers include yard waste paper bags or a resident’s own 20-32 gallon container clearly marked with a yard waste sticker. These stickers are available for free at Dearborn Public Libraries and at the Dearborn Administrative Center.
Yard waste placed in plastic bags or cardboard boxes will not be picked up. Yard waste includes grass clippings, weeds, leaves, shrubs and brush trimmings.
Fruit, vegetables, animal droppings and seasonal decorations cannot be mixed with yard waste. Sod and dirt are not yard waste and will not be collected.
To arrange for a special pickup of unbundled or improperly bundled brush, or for more information, please call the Sanitation Division at (313) 943-2433.
