Brush Chipping and Disposal

The City will provide brush chipping on the first and third Monday of each month beginning in April 3, 2017 through November. Tree limbs and large brush should be placed along curb-lawn at residence and separated from other materials for collection. Brush piles must not exceed two cubic yards. Please Note: Tree limbs and brush will not be accepted at the City's Public Works Facility, located on Sheridan Street. Drop-off is available at the Emmet County Recycling Center. Please contact them at 231-348-0640 or visit their website at www.emmetcounty.org/officials-departments/dpwrecycling-and-waste-services/ for more details.

Small Yard Waste
The City will begin collecting small yard wastes (materials raked from yards, flowers, shrub clippings, etc.) weekly, every Thursday, beginning April 6, through June 1, 2017.

Please do not place small yard wastes loosely along streets or curb-and-gutter lines as they could be washed into storm sewers. Instead, place them in open, reusable containers that weigh less than 50 pounds. Such containers will be left behind by collectors. Please have yard waste placed within curb-lawn areas of rights-of-way no later than 8:00 A.M. on the day of collection. Grass clippings will not be picked up by collectors but can be delivered along with other small yard waste to the south side of Sheridan Street, directly across from the City's Public Works facility.
