Boyne City leaf and household junk collections

Leaf Pickup Schedule

The City will pick up leaves during the above scheduled times only. After the scheduled date, citizens will be responsible for their own leaves.
Set bagged leaves curbside anytime after the first day of pick up, in biodegradable paper bags.
City crews will pick up bags on Monday and Fridays only.
If your bags have been out for an extended period of time and have not been collected call City Hall at 582-6597.
Biodegradable paper bags are available at Boyne City Co-Op and Ace Hardware.
Put only leaves in bags as they are not strong enough to hold sticks, sand, or stones.

You may haul your own leaves, either bagged in biodegradable paper bags or unbagged, to the compost site on Robinson Street, open seven days a week for your convenience.
