City of Kentwood Offers Brush and Leaf Drop-Off Programs to Residents
The City of Kentwood will again offer its Brush and Leaf Drop-Off programs to residents this fall. Both sites will run from Saturday, Oct. 17 through Sunday, Dec. 6 from noon to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 6 p.m. on Sunday. Residents may drop off brush, sticks, tree limbs, logs, loose leaves and grass clippings at the Kentwood Department of Public Works, located at 5068 Breton Ave. SE.
Beyond helping make yard maintenance easier, leaf and brush collection 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.
“With the change of seasons, getting debris out of the right-of-way is incredibly important,” said Jim Wolford, Department of Public Works supervisor. “Clearing brush and leaves prevents buildup of material in the roadway and storm drains, keeping our infrastructure running smoothly throughout the City.”
The service is available to Kentwood residents only. Anyone wishing to drop off items must show proof of residency. Materials that cannot be accepted include: trash, plastic bags, dirt, concrete, asphalt, tires, rocks, stones, construction materials, glass or metal.
