City of Kentwood Offers Spring Brush and Leaf Drop-Off to Residents
The City of Kentwood will again offer brush and leaf drop-off services to residents this spring. Starting Saturday, April 3, residents may drop off brush, sticks, tree limbs, logs, loose leaves and grass clippings at the Kentwood Department of Public Works, 5068 Breton Ave. SE. Drop-off is available noon-8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon-6 p.m. Sunday through 5 p.m. Friday, May 28.
The services are available to Kentwood residents only and proof of residency is required. Materials that cannot be accepted include trash, paper and plastic bags, dirt, concrete, asphalt, tires, rocks, stones, construction materials, glass and metal.
In addition to making yard maintenance easier, leaf and brush drop-off services also help residents stay in compliance with City ordinances. The accumulation of leaves and debris on a property or in the right-of-way is prohibited in the City of Kentwood, as well as burning leaves and brush.
“As snow melts in the spring, getting yard and tree debris out of the right-of-way is incredibly important for our roadways and storm drains,” said Jim Wolford, Department of Public Works supervisor. “Clearing brush and leaves prevents buildup in these areas, keeping our infrastructure running smoothly throughout the city.”
More information about the City’s brush and leaf drop-off services is available at kentwood.us/BrushLeafDropOff.
After May 28, the sites will remain closed for summer and return in the fall.
