Fall has arrived, leaves are falling and clean-up is an ongoing process this time of year!  Just a reminder that yard waste will be picked up on your regular trash day through the end of November.
Yard waste must be in brown paper bags or in trash cans labeled YARD WASTE. Stickers are available at the City Hall front desk. Small limbs, branches, or shrubs must be bundled with twine, in manageable 3 ft lengths.
Please separate the yard waste materials from your regular trash by a few feet to ease pick up.

Fall Leaf Collection: The City of South Lyon vacuums leaves for composting from single family residents throughout the City each fall from approximately October 1 to November 30 until the weather no longer permits (generally after the first snow). Residents in single family homes should place un-bagged leaves in the street next to curb and the City will pick them up. Do not place anything other than leaves in the pile.
