The Brush Drop-Off Site located at 2471 N. Keystone Road will be closing for the season at the end of the day on Saturday November 18th. The brush drop-off site will reopen in April 2018.

Materials accepted at the Brush Drop-Off Site include:

  • Brush and branches at a cost of $5.00/cubic yard
  • Grass clippings and leaves at a cost of $5.00/cubic yard or $1.00/bag
  • Untreated construction wood at a cost of $8.00/ cubic yard
  • Pallets at a cost of $1.00 each
  • Stumps at a cost of $.50/inch up to 18" diameter.
  • The brush site does NOT accept dirt, sod, concrete and stumps or branches greater than 18” in diameter.  Please separate your grass clippings and leaves from branches and twigs.

Did you know? The Michigan Legislature enacted Public Act 264 which, as of March 28, 1995, prohibits yard clippings from being disposed in landfills or municipal solid waste incinerators.

Yard clippings/waste is defined to mean leaves, grass clippings, vegetable or other garden debris, shrubbery, or brush or tree trimmings less than four feet in length and two inches in diameter that could be converted to compost.

Diverting yard waste from landfill disposal conserves landfill space, reduces landfill methane emissions and converts organic material into compost for enhancing soils.
