Spring Clean Up For City Residents

Event Title: Spring Clean-Up Program-City Residents
Date/Time: March 10 to April 7, 2024
Location: Holland City Streets

Yard-Work

Holland's Annual Spring Clean-Up Program has been scheduled for
March 10, 2024 through April 7, 2024.  

Residents may rake yard clippings, shrub trimmings, wind-blown twigs, and small branches into the curb or road shoulders starting March 10, 2024.  Pickup by City Street Department Crews will begin on April 8th, 2024. They will make one pass through the city during the week. If your pile has not been picked up, you may continue to add to it, but once it has been picked up, City Crews will not be back to pick up any additional items. 

Heavy limbs, stumps, large trees, garbage, and refuse in bags will not be removed and must be disposed of by other means.

Please note that refuse piles left in yard areas cannot be picked up due to the potential damage to yards, sprinkler systems, or landscaping by the trucks and equipment used in the program. The Streets Division asks that refuse piles not be placed near utility poles, guy wires, fire hydrants, mailboxes or other obstructions that would prevent their equipment from accessing your leaf pile.

As with snow removal, refuse piles may only be left on your own property, not the property of another, per Ordinance Sec. 19-7. Please see the attachment for details of the ordinance.

Residents with a storm drain near their home must take special precautions not to stack debris on top of or near storm structures.  This could lead to drains backing up, causing puddling near your home, and leaves that enter the storm system polluting our waterways.  To learn more about protecting our valuable waterways, you may visit the following link - http://www.the-macc.org/watershed/overview/
