Kentwood’s Leaf and Brush Drop-Off Sites Reopened Dec. 13-18 to Help Residents with Storm Damage
Residents May Report Tree Debris on City Streets to the Department of Public Works
The City of Kentwood reopened its leaf and brush drop-off sites today Dec. 13-18 to help residents dispose of fallen leaves and tree debris following the weekend’s high winds.
Residents may drop off brush, sticks, tree limbs, logs, loose leaves and loose grass clippings through Saturday, Dec. 18 at the Kentwood Department of Public Works, 5068 Breton Ave. SE. The drop-off sites are open noon-8 p.m. Monday-Friday and 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday. They typically are closed in the winter.
“We’re reopening our drop-off sites to help residents clean up after Saturday’s windstorm as well as accommodate the late leaf drop this year,” Public Works Director Chad Griffin said. “With the warm temperatures expected this week, this is a great opportunity for residents to take care of the leaves, trees and branches that have fallen on their properties.”
The service is available to Kentwood residents only. Staff will be on-site checking for proof of residency and appropriate materials. Materials that cannot be accepted include paper and plastic bags, trash, dirt, concrete, asphalt, tires, rocks, stones, construction materials, glass and metal.
Residents may report downed tree limbs and other debris obstructing city streets to the Department of Public Works at 616.554.0817 or 911. Non-emergency street or sidewalk concerns can be reported online at kentwood.us/psr/index.php.
