Properly Manage Your Leaves and Yard Waste this Fall

EGLE encourages Michigan residents to properly manage their leaves and yard waste as they clean up their yards this Fall. Leaves and grass clippings can be composted, scheduled for pick-up with a local waste provider, or you can find a drop off location for composting yard waste by calling your local municipality, viewing EGLE’s map of registered composters, or searching the Michigan Recycling Directory.

For additional information on yard waste management as well as prohibited management practices, visit EGLE's new leaf litter web page.
