Yard Waste Pick Up Suspended Until April 30th
We have clarified that yard waste is not considered essential under Governor Whitmer’s executive order. Effective April 10th - April 30th the City of Alma will cease yard waste pick up. Curbside trash is considered essential and pick up will continue on your normally scheduled day. Recycling is still being treated as trash until the recycling center re-opens.
We will continue to do all we can to work our way through the orders and directives we receive. We understand the frustration and anxiety everyone is feeling. Thanks again for your continued cooperation and support for each other during these difficult times.
Fall Leaf Collection
Fall leaf collection begins in late October and runs through the end of November. Property owners are permitted to rake their leaves to the edge of the roadway for collection without putting them in containers.
Leaves should not be placed in the traveled portion of the roadway, over or around drainage structures, or on sidewalks. Brush and other yard waste should be separated from leaf piles.
The collection schedule will be published annually prior to commencing the service and can also be found on the City’s website at www.myalma.org.
The City will collect leaves twice during the program in accordance with the published schedule.
