The City of East Grand Rapids will begin its annual fall leaf collection program on Monday, Oct. 10. The program will run through Friday, Dec. 9.
Residents may place leaves in the street for pickup during the collection period without following the regular container rules. The normal pick-up schedule will still apply, however, crews may take longer than usual to retrieve the yard debris because of the higher demand.
A full pick-up schedule can be found at www.eastgr.org/YardWasteSchedule.
The City encourages residents to not place leaves in the street until the collection begins. Residents are also encouraged to keep debris as close to the curb as possible.
For questions, contact the Public Works Department at 616.940.4870, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
