Spring Clean-up for Lawn Refuse
Holland's Annual Spring Cleanup has been scheduled for Sat, Mar 18th (All day) to Sun, Apr 9th (All day).
Residents may rake yard clippings, shrub trimmings, and wind-blown twigs into the curb or road shoulders for pickup by Street Department Crews.
Heavy limbs, stumps, garbage and refuse in bags will not be removed and must be disposed of by other means.
Residents must have their yard refuse placed curbside by no later than April 9, 2017 as City crews will begin pickups on April 10 and will only make one pickup at each residence. Refuse placed in the right-of-way after April 9th may be subject to a Civil Infraction Ticket.
Hauling priority will be given to streets with curb and gutter to minimize the possibility of debris washing into storm sewers. If you live on a street with curb and gutter please be kind to your neighbors downstream by not placing debris piles on top of, or near storm grates. Stacking refuse on a storm structure could lead to drains backing up, cause puddling near your home and leaves that enter the storm system pollute our waterways.

If you have questions about the Spring Cleanup Program, please call or email Transportation Services at 616.928.2400 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
As with snow removal, spring refuse piles may only be left on your own property, not the property of another. Please see attachment for details of Ordinance Section 19-7.
Please remember that spring cleanup and fall leaf pickup are the only occasions in which yard debris may be placed in the street for pickup by the Street Department. At all other times, clippings, trimmings, and yard debris must be disposed of by other means.
For those unable to participate in the Spring Cleanup program, you may be able to obtain a Project Pride Coupon. Please see attachment below about Project Pride.
If you need more frequent collections of yard waste, please call a private hauler of your choice to set up a separate "yard waste" account.
