Farmington Hills Compostables and Yard Waste website 

Yard waste pickup will end this year in Farmington Hills on your regularly scheduled pickup day during the week of December 7 – 11, 2020.

Starting December 14, yard waste cannot be picked up in accordance with the City’s refuse contract and Michigan laws governing yard waste disposal.  Any accumulated yard waste should be stored until spring pickup resumes in April 2021.

Acceptable yard waste includes leaves, grass, shrub clippings, twigs, and plant materials.  There are three options available for yard waste disposal:

  1. Place yard waste in a trash can (35-gallon size limit) with a yard waste sticker on both sides.  Yard waste stickers are available free from City Hall or the DPW. 
  2. Put yard waste in brown paper yard waste bags.  Please do not overstuff bags.
  3. Use a mulching mower and recycle leaves and grass clippings back into the lawn.

Small limbs (six inches in diameter or less) and brush must be tied in bundles that do not exceed four feet in length or weigh more than 60 pounds per bundle.  Unbundled brush and large limbs will not be picked up.  Brush or twigs placed in cans or bags should not stick out above the top of the container.  Also, large quantities of dirt or sod are not accepted for pickup.
