Michigan law currently prohibits yard waste from disposal in municipal solid waste landfills. Yard waste is defined as: leaves, grass clippings, vegetable/garden debris and shrubbery, brush or tree trimmings less than 4 feet in length and 2 inches in diameter. Contact your city or township office to ask whether they provide a yard waste drop-off location. Consider composting your yard waste as a free way to return nutrients to your soil or garden and make your own potting soil.
