Boyne City leaf pickups begin soon

Boyne City Fall leaf pickup begins on Monday Oct. 15 and will conclude Monday Nov. 12.

Leaves will be picked up on Mondays and Fridays only.

The City will pick up leaves during the above scheduled dates only.

After the scheduled date, citizens will be responsible for their own leaves.

Please set bagged leaves curbside any time after the first day of pickup, in biodegradable paper bags.

City crews will pick up the bags as time allows.

If your bags have been out for an extended period of time and have not been collected, please notify Boyne City Hall at 582-6597.

Biodegradable paper bags are available at Boyne City Ace Hardware and Boyne Co-op or can be purchased from any other source.

Please put only leaves in bags as they are not strong enough to hold sticks, sand or stones and will tear upon lifting.

Brush will not be picked up; however, residents may take their brush and leaves, either bagged in biodegradable bags or un-bagged, up to the North Boyne Compost Site at the end of Robinson Street, which is open seven days a week for your convenience.

Commercial businesses may also utilize the compost area with their city issued permit.

City Ordinance prohibits depositing leaves or other yard waste in the street.
