City of Kentwood Offers Fall Leaf and Brush Drop-Off to Residents
The City of Kentwood will again offer leaf and brush drop-off services to residents this fall.
Starting Saturday, Oct. 15, residents may drop off loose leaves, brush, sticks, tree limbs, logs and grass clippings at the Kentwood Department of Public Works, 5068 Breton Ave. SE.
Drop-off will be available noon-8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon-6 p.m. Sunday through Dec. 3. The sites will be closed Friday, Nov. 11 in observance of Veterans Day, as well as Thursday, Nov. 24 and Friday, Nov. 25 for Thanksgiving.
The services are 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.
The drop-off services provide residents with a convenient way to keep their yards clear of leaves and debris as leaves begin to fall. 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.
“Fall is a busy season for yard cleanup, ” said Chad Griffin, Department of Public Works director. “We’re glad to offer these services to help residents keep their yards free of debris.
“It also helps us keep roadways and storm drains clear, which contributes to making the City of Kentwood a beautiful place to live, work and play.”
After closing for winter in December, both drop-off sites will reopen in the spring.
