“With the weather already getting warmer, I know how important it is for our residents to have an option to take care of their yard waste. The Public Service Department will offer a drop-off location that is free for Lansing residents prior to the start of curbside collection in April,” said Mayor Schor.

There will be a 10 bag/bundle (combined) limit per address, per day. 

Directional signs will be posted at the drop-off location. 

The yard waste drop-off is only available to City of Lansing residents, and a driver’s license will be required to show proof of residency.
