Important Alert

Grass Clippings

Grass Clippings Disposal Policy

Many residents contact City Hall regarding the disposal of grass clippings during the spring, summer, and fall months. Research recommends that clippings be left on the lawn to absorb back into the soil or composted with other natural yard waste. 

The City of Wayland does NOT provide grass clipping or yard waste disposal services

Michigan State Law prohibits yard waste in landfills, so please do not place grass clippings in your trash cart.

For grass clipping and other yard waste removal, contact your refuse hauler to see if they offer this service to their customers.  Some companies offer collection options such as cart service or compostable paper bags.  while the City of Wayland cannot endorse any one company, we are aware that the following refuse haulers provide yard waste service within the City of Wayland.
