Curbside Yard Waste Begins on April 11th  

Yard Waste Pickup Resumes During the Week of April 11

Yard waste collection will resume in the City of Farmington Hills starting on Monday, April 11, 2022. As of that date, all yard waste placed at the curbside in acceptable containers will be collected by the yard waste truck on your regular garbage day. Yard waste pickup will end during the week of December 12, 2022.
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.
Any Christmas trees saved for composting must be cut and bundled according to yard waste pickup guidelines. For more information, call the DPW at 248-871-2850 or visit www.fhgov.com.
