Three municipalities extending their 2017 yard waste season

November 30 marks the end of Mid Michigan Waste Authority’s seasonal curbside yard waste collection for most MMWA member communities.  However, three municipalities – Saginaw Township, the City of Saginaw, and Thomas Township – have opted to extend their yard waste seasons.

Yard waste services are offered by 13 of Mid Michigan Waste Authority’s 34 municipal members: Village of Birch Run, Bridgeport Township, Buena Vista Township, Carrollton Township, 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:

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. To order yard waste stickers or for more information on yard waste guidelines, contact MMWA at (989) 781-9555.
