Leaf Collection Program

Leaf CollectionEach fall the City of Northville collects leaves, which residents have raked into the street gutter.  This is the only time during the year that residents are allowed to deposit material into the street.  This popular program begins in late October and is completed in mid December.

2017 Leaf Collection Schedule

Leaf Pickup

  • DPW Crews will make two passes through your neighborhood this Fall.
  • Residents north of 8 mile (Area A) may rake leaves into the street before 7am on Oct. 30, a second pick-up is scheduled for Nov. 27; for residents south of 8 Mile (Area B) the pick-up dates are Nov. 6 and Dec. 4.
  • To prevent drainage and possible flooding problems, do not rake leaves into the street until the week prior to pickup.
  • Leaves may also be placed in brown bags or “compost cans” and will be picked up every trash day until December 1st. We cannot accept leaves in plastic bags.
  • Please no branches, brush, garden waste, grass clippings or trash.

Brush Pickup

  • Branches can be stacked neatly behind the curb with the cut ends facing the street. Branches 6 feet long and up to 6 inches in diameter are accepted.
  • Every Monday, year-round, a crew will chip any branches left at the curb. Branches must be between the street and the sidewalk.
  • No roots, stumps, dirt, lumber, railroad ties or any wood with metal in it.

Compost pickup ends December 1st.
