Yard Waste

Yard Waste

Yard waste has been banned from landfills in MIchigan since 1995. Citizens are responsible for disposal of any yard waste produced on their property.  Composting and recycling are two options. 

On October 17, 2012 holland City Council passed an ordinance that appoints a single yard waste hauler within the City of Holland.  This ordinance is effective immediately. Yard waste service under the single-hauler appointed by the City of Holland will begin on January 1, 2013. This hauler will be Chef Container. Call(616) 355-1335 for details

As of March 22, 2013, if you need any customer service for Refuse,  Recycling or Yard Waste, please call Chef Container directly at 616-795-4723.  Chef Container is now responsible for all Customer Service & Billing issues for the City's curbside refuse/recycling and yard waste services.  These services will not be covered by the BPW anymore.

Yard Waste Collection in the City of Holland begins on the first Monday in April. If you would like to have yard waste service, call Mary Ann at 616-355.1335 or call Chef directly 616-795-4723 to order your waste container.


The City of Holland will continue to offer our Fall Leaf Collection for leaves only and Spring Clean Up for brush, trimmings and branches.
