City of Detroit Department of Public Works (DPW) wants to remind residents the deadline for yard waste collections is this month. Monday, December 11 begins the last two-week cycle for yard waste pick up. The week of December 11 will be the last collection for Detroiters who are scheduled for bulk/yard waste pick up next week. Collection for yard waste will not resume until April 2024.

Christmas and New Year’s will postpone trash, recycling, and bulk pickups by a day because those holidays are on weekdays this year. In addition, collections of Christmas trees will be from January 2 to 12.
