NEW SCHEDULE CHANGES:
Soon leaf collection will be starting throughout the City. Please take the time and note the week your neighborhood is scheduled for collection. The Department of Public Works will make every effort to maintain this schedule. However, the weather may influence the timetable. If this is the case, you will be notified via Constant Contact and by signage at the entrance to your subdivision or street. You can sign-up for Constant Contact e-mail notification by visiting our website at http://www.wixomgov.org and select the “Signup Email List
” option. If you have any questions, please call the DPW at 248.624.0141.
BE PREPARED: Know your scheduled week! Rake your leaves by the weekend prior to your scheduled Section. Leaves piled longer than a week may scatter, plug the storm sewer system, or cause possible traffic hazards.
DIRECTIONS: Keep leaves free from debris such as branches, rocks, metal, lawn clippings and pet waste. Also, DO NOT PARK IN THE STREET DURING YOUR ASSIGNED SECTION.
BAG YOUR LEAVES OPTION: Wixom’s Leaf Collection Program is designed to provide residents with optional bagged leaf collection. You can bag your leaves for Waste Management’s curbside collection through the end of November. Also, Wixom residents can drop off leaves and other yard waste “free-of-charge” at the DPW’s compost facility (2041 Charms Road) until the end of December.
PATIENCE: Leaf collection takes time. Delays due to weather, the rate at which the leaves fall and potential emergencies are inevitable. Unless an immediate hazard exists, the DPW will follow the schedule that ensures systematic coverage.
