Dearborn’s 2022 curbside yard waste program is set to begin the week of March 14-18, 2022 and last through the week of Dec. 12-16, 2022.
Starting the week of Monday, March 14, residents can put yard waste in properly marked containers at the curb on their trash collection day.
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.
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 may not 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 free stickers are available at Henry Ford Centennial Library, Esper Branch Library, Bryant Branch Library and at the Dearborn Administrative Center (DAC), 16901 Michigan Ave. during normal operating hours.
Yard waste placed in plastic bags or cardboard boxes will not be picked up.
This convenient service provides residents the opportunity to get a head start on spring cleanup and dispose of materials left over from the fall.
To arrange for a special pickup of unbundled or improperly bundled brush, or for more information, please call the Sanitation Division at (313) 943-2150.
To pick up a free yard waste sticker, visit the DAC from 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
