    The City of Dearborn programs to collect fallen leaves will be ending soon

    The City of Dearborn’s two separate programs to collect leaves from in front of residential properties will be ending soon, with loose leaf collection ending the week of Nov. 30-Dec. 4 and bagged leaf collection ending the week of Dec. 7-11.
    The City’s loose leaf collection program will be ending the week of Nov. 30 – Dec. 4, with a neighborhood’s final leaf pickup occurring on their trash day that week. This means that if your normal trash day is Monday, loose leaves will be collected on Monday, Nov. 30; if your normal trash day is Tuesday, they will be collected on Tuesday, Dec. 1.
    The pattern for loose leaf collection will continue throughout the week, with the last loose leaf collection occurring for the Friday district on Friday, Dec. 4.
    If residents miss their last day of loose leaf collection, they still have one more opportunity to get their leaves picked up via the city’s other program.
    The city’s second program, the collection of bagged or containerized leaves set on the easement, ends the week of Dec. 7-11. Individuals should place their bagged or containerized leaves on the easement alongside their trash and recycling carts. Pickup of bagged leaves occurs the same day as your normal trash day. After a neighborhood’s last pickup, the city’s trash contractor will not pick up any leaves or yard waste in bags or containers until March 2021.
    If residents still have yard waste or bagged leaves to dispose of, they can drop it off at the DPW yard on the third Saturday of each month. The next scheduled DPW yard day is Saturday, Dec. 19 from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m.
