DPW - Leaf Pickup Service in Livonia

Truck vacuuming leavesEach fall the City assists residents with their leaf removal through a bulk leaf pickup program.  The collection program provides residents with help in removing the large majority of their leaves raked out to the curb, which will allow the resident to use the weekly trash collection service to dispose of residual leaves.  Leaf pick up typically begins at the end of October and runs through the beginning of December.  Details are published in the Fall/Winter newsletter and a brochure is mailed to every Livonia residence in mid-October with program details.
    

Prior to leaf pickup season, leaves may be disposed of using the weekly refuse collection service.  Leaves should be placed in up to 33 gallon containers marked with a yard waste sticker or in paper compost bags.  See the Yard Waste page for more information.
