Compost and Yard Waste

Compost & Yard Waste

Use the following guidelines when regarding compost and yard waste pickup:

  1. All yard waste including grass, leaves, plant materials, and brush are to be placed in containers, no larger than 35-gallon receptacles, that is clearly marked with a "COMPOST" sticker or in brown paper bags.
  2. Each yard waste receptacle must have a "COMPOST" sticker affixed to it and be clearly visible from the street.
  3. COMPOST container stickers are free. Yard waste containers that are not identified by a "COMPOST" sticker affixed to the receptacle, will not be picked up by the contractor.
  4. Stickers are supplied free of charge and can be picked up at the Center Line City Hall during regular business hours Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Yard waste in plastic bags cannot be picked up.

Regulations Regarding Fall Leaf Pickup

Residents must place the leaves in the proper receptacles to be picked up by the waste haulers. This is a service that is included in your solid waste bill. All residents will be required to use the curb side yard waste pick up by placing their leaves, in the fall, in the proper yard waste receptacles or "kraft" paper bags. Failure to comply with this new policy will result in an ordinance violation, pursuant to the City of Center Line Code of Ordinances, Section 62-19, leaving, depositing, spilling, etc. materials on the street.
