City of Kentwood Offers Fall Leaf and Brush Drop-Off to Residents
The City of Kentwood again will offer leaf and brush drop-off services to residents this fall.
Starting Monday, Oct. 18, residents may drop off loose leaves, brush, sticks, tree limbs, logs 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 Dec. 5.*
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.
The drop-off services provide residents with a convenient way to keep their yards clear of leaves and debris. 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.
“We look forward to helping residents with their fall yard cleanup and making sure our roadways and storm drains remain clear of leaves and other tree debris this season,” said Jim Wolford, Department of Public Works supervisor. “The City of Kentwood is pleased to offer these services to our community in the spring and fall each year.”
After closing for winter in December, both drop-off sites will reopen in the spring.
More information about the City’s leaf and brush drop-off services is available at kentwood.us/BrushLeafDropOff.
*Our offices will be closed Thursday, Nov. 11 for Veterans Day and Thursday, Nov. 25 and Friday, Nov. 26 for Thanksgiving. Please note: The brush and leaf drop-off sites will also be closed on these days.
