The leaf collection service won’t remove all leaves, and residents should place those that fall after collection days into paper bags or labeled yard waste containers for pickup on their regular trash collection days.

Farmington yard waste collection provided by Waste Management ends the last full week of November, while the Farmington Hills collection continues through the week of December 10, on customers’ regular trash collection days. Any yard waste accumulated after those dates should be stored until spring pickup resumes in April 2019.
