DPS has received several calls relating to leaf collection, specifically, what happens if it snows. The leaf collection program is slated to run “until all the leaves have fallen, or the first snowfall, whichever comes first”. This refers to the first “major” snowfall, when DPS has to make the decision to convert the tandem-axle dump trucks from leaf collection to salting operations. Our Michigan weather can change at any time, so they have to be prepared for anything this time of year. DPS has prepared a short Q and A which has been posted on the City's facebook page.
At this time, DPS plans to resume leaf collection as soon as the early season snow melts off.
Check out the Fall Leaf Pickup page for helpful reminders on where and when to put your leaves, and how you can help your DPS make this another successful leaf season. DPS crews will be by every week to pick up your leaves on your normal garbage day until all the leaves have fallen, or the first snowfall, whichever comes first.
