BRUSH AND LEAF DROP-OFF PROGRAMS
PROGRAMS TO RUN CONCURRENTLY beginning OCT. 5
The City of Kentwood will again offer its brush and leaf drop-off sites this fall at the Kentwood Department of Public Works, located at 5068 Breton Ave. SE. The sites will run concurrently from Saturday, Oct. 5 through Saturday, Dec. 7 with open hours from noon to 8 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, and noon to 6 p.m. on Sundays.
The brush drop-off site will accept brush, sticks, tree limbs and logs. Materials that cannot be accepted include: plastic bags, trash, dirt, concrete, asphalt, tires, rocks, stones, construction materials, glass or metal.
The leaf drop-off site will accept leaves and grass clippings. Leaves should be loose when dropped off. If they are transported to the site in bags, they must be dumped out. Small dumpsters will be provided for the disposal of bags.
Beyond helping make yard maintenance easier, leaf and brush collections services also help residents stay in compliance with City ordinances. The accumulation of leaves and debris within the lot line of a property or upon the adjacent right-of-way is prohibited in the City of Kentwood, as is burning leaves and brush.
The services are available to Kentwood residents only; anyone wishing to drop off items must show proof of residency. Questions may be directed to the Department of Public Works at 616.554.0817.
