Yard Waste

Yard waste consists of grass clippings, leaves, garden material, and bundled or contained branches that are two to three inches or smaller in diameter and cut in four-foot lengths or smaller. Weight not to exceed 50 pounds per container or bundle. 

Yard waste will be picked up on your regular trash day. Yard waste pick up begins April 1st, 2019  and continues through the last full week before Christmas.

How do I prepare yard waste for pick-up?

  • Place in brown paper compost bags or in a trash can (32 gallons or smaller) with handles. Trash cans must have the Ypsilanti Yard Waste sticker. 
  • Place bags or can approximately six feet from trash.
  • Think green - no plastic bags please.
  • Stickers for containers may be obtained at the Department of Public Services Mon-Fri 8 AM to 4 PM (excluding holidays).
