Leaf and Brush Pick-up begins November 13
There are five areas for pick-up on five different days. Please check out the Pick-up Map or call the Township if you don't know which day your leaves and brush will be picked up. All leaves must be out by the curb in paper yard waste bags and sticks, no more than 2" in diameter and less than 4' long need to be tied in bundles. You can find more information on the Recycle and Waste Program Page.
There has been some concern that leaves won't be down in time for the pick-up. Unfortunately the pick-up is scheduled a year in advance. At one time it was scheduled for the week after Thanksgiving but there would often be a problem with snow covered leaves and bags frozen to the ground.
If you have leaves after the pick-up, here are some suggestions: take them to a landscaping company that will use them for for compost, compost them yourself, hire one of the lawn care companies to sweep them up and dispose of them or bag them up and cover them with a tarp someplace out of the sight until spring pick-up. If you know of a community garden or organic farm that would be interested in leaves for mulch or compost please have them contact the township at email@example.com so we can have a list of other places that might be willing to take leaves.
KALAMAZOO TOWNSHIP HAS A FACEBOOK PAGE
You can now find us on Facebook at Kalamazoo Charter Township. We'll be using the page to get information out to you more quickly and to provide you with useful links and event information. We would like to be interactive but we don't want to use your tax money to monitor it 24/7 and don't want anything offensive showing up on your Township Facebook page. We do want your input though so we've set up a new email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have comments, complaints, good suggestions, cool pictures of the Township or information you think we should share you can email us. We're new at this so please be patient, it's an evolving project and we hope you'll find it informative and maybe even a little fun.
