City of Frankenmuth, City of Saginaw, Saginaw Twp, extend season

The last week of November marks the end of Mid Michigan Waste Authority’s seasonal curbside yard waste collection for most MMWA member communities.  However, three municipalities – City of Frankenmuth, Saginaw Township and the City of Saginaw – have opted to extend their yard waste seasons.

Yard waste services are offered by 14 of Mid Michigan Waste Authority’s 34 municipal members: Village of Birch Run, Bridgeport Township, Buena Vista Township, Carrollton Township, City of Frankenmuth, James Township, Kochville Township, City of Saginaw, Saginaw Township, Village of St. Charles, Spaulding Township, Thomas Township, Tittabawassee Township and City of Zilwaukee. The last YW collection days for those communities are noted below:

The City of Saginaw provides its own yard waste collection services, so the City’s extension is weather permitting.

Extending yard waste season is an individual municipality decision that must be made before the end of November. Residents should watch the MMWA website and Facebook page for the latest information about curbside collection services, including yard waste.

A number of MMWA member communities offer limited-time brush drop-off sites or collection. Residents should contact their community’s municipal office directly to find out if this service is available. Yard waste stickers are available at municipal offices in participating communities or free through MMWA. For more information on yard waste guidelines, contact MMWA at (989) 781-9555.

Mid Michigan Waste Authority is a government entity providing comprehensive residential solid waste services to approximately 69,000 households in 34 communities across the Saginaw Valley area. For more information about MMWA programming, visit
