BRUSH AND LEAF DROP-OFF PROGRAMS
Oct. 17-Dec. 6
The City of Kentwood will again offer its brush drop-off program this fall. The program will run concurrently with the City’s annual leaf drop-off site at the Kentwood Department of Public Works, 5068 Breton Ave. SE, from Saturday, Oct. 17 through Sunday, Dec. 6.
The brush drop-off site will accept brush, sticks, tree limbs and logs. Materials not accepted include: plastic bags, trash, dirt, concrete, asphalt, tires, rocks, stones, construction materials, glass or metal. The leaf drop-off site will accept loose leaves and grass clippings.
Beyond helping make yard maintenance easier, leaf and brush collections services also help residents stay in compliance with City ordinances. The accumulation of leaves and debris within the lot line of a property or upon the adjacent right-of-way is prohibited in the City of Kentwood, as is burning leaves and brush.
The services are available to Kentwood residents only; anyone wishing to drop off items must show proof of residency. No contractors are allowed. Questions may be directed to the Department of Public Works at 616.554.0817.
