Saginaw Twp, City of Saginaw & Thomas Twp extend 2017 yard waste season

For 2017, Saginaw Township, the City of Saginaw, and Thomas Township have opted to extend their yard waste seasons. In Thomas Township, December 8 will be the last day for yard waste service. In Saginaw Township, the last day of yard waste service for residents with a Monday collection day is December 4. Saginaw Township residents who are serviced on Tuesdays will have a final collection date of December 5. In the City of Saginaw, yard waste collection will run through the week of Dec 4 – Dec 8.
