The City provides curbside yard waste collection services annually from the first full week of April through the end of November. Yard waste—including grass clippings, leaves, small sticks, and weeds—is collected weekly on your regular trash day. Yard waste should be placed in either a reusable container with a Ferndale Yard Waste Compost label (labels available at DPW) or paper kraft bags (available at most local hardware and home improvement stores).
Between December and April, yard waste can be dropped off free of charge at SOCRRA's Troy transfer station; contact 248-288-5150 for details.
