Curbside Yard Waste Collection to Begin Monday, May 4, 2020

The City of Lansing today announced that curbside collection of residential yard waste will begin Monday, May 4, 2020. Due to the large amount of yard waste that residents have at the curbside already, it is likely that collection will not take place on the normal collection day until crews are able to catch up.  

Residents should still place yard waste at the curbside on their regular collection day. Depending on the amount of material in a given route, collection will likely be delayed up to a week or longer in some areas. Drivers will be working extended schedules until normal collection schedules can be met. 

In order for the fastest, most efficient collection of yard waste, it will only be accepted if it meets the following standard guidelines:

  • Materials must be placed in paper yard waste bags. Paper bags are available at grocery stores, convenience stores, hardware and garden stores. Materials placed in plastic bags, trash/recycling carts or private waste hauler carts will not be accepted.
  • Bags and bundles must weigh less than 30 pounds.
  • Brush and tree trimmings must be securely bundled by string or twine, not wire.
  • Branches must be less than four feet in length and two inches in diameter.

Residents should not place bags or bundles in the roadway, where it can affect storm water drainage, parking, trash/recycling collection, etc. 

The City also encourages residents to try backyard composting, grasscycling and/or mulching. Additional information on these practices can be found at either or  

Status updates are available on the City’s website at
