2019 Leaf Collection in the City of Wixom

As one of the few remaining communities to offer the service, the Department of Public Works (DPW) of the City of Wixom is proud to bring you Curbside Leaf Pick up again for 2019!  This service involves bringing a truck with a vacuum trailer along every residential curb within the City limits and vacuuming leaves that have been left curbside by residents. This is a six-week long process that is challenged by many factors:

  • Weather (can cause leaves to drop much earlier or much later than average)
  • Traffic and parking (sometimes residents or visitors unknowingly park on a street being serviced)
  • Age and species of trees (some trees drop their leaves much earlier or much later than average)
  • Time required to provide the service
  • Equipment impacts when leaves are wet or filled with debris

Here’s how you can help:

  • Know the schedule and follow it (sign up for e-mail notifications or look for signage in your neighborhood and refer to the table below)
  • Rake leaves to the curb prior to the week of pickup (between ditch and curb if possible)
  • Keep debris out of leaves (pet waste, branches, rocks, metal, lawn clippings)
  • Be patient – DPW will make every effort to pick up leaves before the snow falls

If you still have leaves after your pickup has occurred, here are your options:

  • Put leaves in yard waste bags or bins for pickup by Waste Management up until the morning of November 26, 2019
  • Bring bagged leaves to SPURT located at 2041 Charms Road, Wixom, MI48393 (they will compost your leaves)
  • Hire a contractor to remove leaves
  • Compost your leaves for soil enrichment
  • Shred leaves with mulching mower and spread as mulch around plants, bushes & trees
  • Mow leaves into lawn for soil improvement (visit http://www.socwa.org/lawns_gardens.shtml or more information on mulching and composting)
