Holiday Curbside Waste Collection Schedule
In observance of the Labor Day holiday during the week of September 1, 2014, the following Frankenmuth curbside collection schedule will be in effect.
Refuse/Recycling Collection will be on Thursday, September 4, 2014. Your cooperation is requested in not placing refuse and recycling bins out to the curb any earlier than 7pm on the evening prior to the scheduled collection. Please remove your recycling bins from the curb by the evening on collection day.
Also be advised of the following reminders:
Monthly Tree Branch/Brush Collection is scheduled to begin Tuesday, September 2, 2014. Brush, including tree limbs no greater than 5 inches in diameter, must be neatly stacked behind the curb, so as not to obstruct street traffic or create a vision obstruction. In preparing for this collection, please do not place brush by the curb any sooner than the weekend prior to the beginning of the pick-up. Tree stumps, smaller twigs and/or hedge trimmings are not acceptable for this collection. The first five minutes of chipping are free. Thereafter, residents will be billed $15 for every five minute period or fraction thereof.
PLEASE NOTE: It is the City’s policy that in the event the chipping crew is required to respond or return to a location outside of their
normal tree limb collection route/schedule, the property owner(s) will be billed for the entire time it takes the crew to complete the special collection. Such special collection shall be at the discretion of the DPW Superintendent as he takes into consideration the amount of tree limbs to be collected, the timing of the next regularly scheduled collection, and the impact of the special collection on the crew’s normal work schedule.
Yard Waste Collection. Grass clippings, hedge trimmings or smaller twigs that can be bagged, may be placed in a plastic bag, no larger than 33 gallons. The bags must be placed by the curbside before 7am. Requests for this collection must be pre-arranged. Please leave your name, address, telephone number and the number of bags with the City's yard waste contractor, Timber Oaks, at 989-823-2535 (a local call), from 7am to 7pm on the Monday prior to the Tuesday collection. Each bag must have a "City of Frankenmuth Yard Waste Tag" attached or it will not be collected. Each tag costs $4 and may be purchased at the City Office, Gil-Roy's Hardware, Kroger and Satow Drug Store.
