  1. Yard waste pickup

    March 28, 2016 - December 2, 2016

    City of Battle Creek residents ONLY. Place your items at the curb on your regular trash/recycling pickup day. Leaves and other yard waste should be placed in specially-marked containers and/or paper yard waste bags, the latter of which are available at most area grocery and hardware stores. Approved containers may be up to 32 gallons in size and should be clearly marked “yard waste only.” Each bag or container may not weigh more than 50 pounds. Residents also have the option of renting a 96-gallon car, specially designed for yard waste collection, from Waste Management. These can be used for trash during the winter months, December to March. Call (800) 796-9696 for options and pricing. Other options for addressing yard waste are mowing the lawn and leaving the grass to create natural mulch, or hauling yard waste to Brice Pit, the city’s compost site, at 715 W. River Road. Please don’t let leaves and other lawn debris run into storm drains on city streets.
