Curbside Collection of Yard Waste

Curbside collection of yard waste resumed again for the season on Monday, May 4, 2020. However, due to the large amount of yard waste that was already at the curbside in addition to the late start because of COVID-19, collection is slower than usual and is not necessarily guaranteed to happen on a resident's regularly scheduled day. 

With the intent of stabilizing collection schedules, CART began transitioning to "every other week" collection on Monday, June 15, 2020. This means that going forward until the fall, yard waste collection will be on the same day as a resident's recycling collection. To learn more about this transition and/or to locate your collection day, please visit the Curbside Collection page.

EGLE - Recycling Raccoons

The City of Lansing has partnered with Environment, Great Lakes & Energy (EGLE) - State of Michigan's "Know It Before You Throw It" recycling campaign. Lansing values recycling and is excited to team up with the recycling raccoons to help encourage and educate the community on how to best practice sustainability.

Simple Recycling

In response to the State of Michigan's Executive Order regarding COVID-19, Simple Recycling, which collects clothing and other household items curbside (in orange bags provided by the company), has suspended collection until further notice. When the City of Lansing has received updates, residents will be notified. In the meantime, please call Simple Recycling at 866-835-5068 and request "Michigan" for additional information. 

NOTE: This is not the City's recycling (green carts), which is still operating.
