Spring Brush and Leaf Drop-Off Service Available to Kentwood Residents
The City of Kentwood will once again offer its brush and leaf drop-off service for residents starting Saturday, April 1.
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 Friday, May 26. The site will be closed Sunday, April 9.
The service is 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.
“As the season of spring cleaning gets underway, we want to offer an easy, convenient way to help residents get rid of yard debris,” Public Works Director Chad Griffin said. “Winter weather can create debris in the public right-of-way that leads to clogged storm drains and roadways. Our brush and leaf drop-off service provides help with yard maintenance and keeps our community’s infrastructure operating reliably.”
In addition to making yard clean up easier, the leaf and brush drop-off service also helps 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.
