City of Kentwood Offers Free Fall Leaf and Brush Drop-Off Service to Residents

The City of Kentwood will once again provide a free leaf and brush drop-off service to residents this fall.

Beginning Saturday, Oct. 14, residents may drop off loose leaves, brush, sticks, tree limbs, logs and grass clippings free of charge at the Kentwood Department of Public Works, 5068 Breton Ave. SE. If brought to the site in bags, leaves must be dumped out and bags disposed of in the trash. Bags cannot be left in the leaf pile.

This service is available for Kentwood residents only, and proof of residency is required. Residents can drop off items noon-8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon-6 p.m. Sunday through Dec. 2. The site will be closed Friday, Nov. 10 in observance of Veterans Day and Nov. 23-24 for Thanksgiving.  

Materials that cannot be accepted include trash, paper and plastic bags, dirt, concrete, asphalt, tires, rocks, stones, construction materials, glass and metal.

The burning of leaves and brush as well as the accumulation of debris and leaves on a property or in the right-of-way are prohibited in the city of Kentwood. The drop-off service provides residents with a convenient way to keep their yards clear of leaves and debris during the fall.

“Autumn is busy this time of year, especially with additional yard cleanup created by falling leaves,” said Chad Griffin, Department of Public Works director. “We’re proud to provide our community with this valuable service, which helps residents keep their yards clean and helps us keep roadways and storm drains clear to ensure our infrastructure runs efficiently.”

The drop-off site will reopen in the spring after closing for winter in December.
