Leaf Pile

Holland's Annual Fall Leaf Program has been scheduled for
September 23, 2023, through November 19, 2023.
Only leaves will be picked up. 

Residents may place leaves on the side of the curb, out of the roadway, between September 23 and November 19. City crews will begin pick-up on November 20 and continue through the week. There will only be one pick-up of the piles on each street. 

If branches or other debris are in your leaf piles, your pile will not be picked up.  Leaf piles left in yard areas cannot be picked up due to the potential damage to yards, sprinklers systems, or landscaping by the trucks and equipment used in the program. The Streets Division asks that leaf piles not be placed near utility poles, guy wires, fire hydrants, mailboxes, or other obstructions that prevent their equipment from accessing your leaf pile.

For questions about the Fall Leaf Program, please call 616.928.2400.

As with snow removal, leaf piles may only be left on your own property, not the property of another, per Ordinance Sec. 19-7.  Please see the attachment for details of the ordinance.

Residents with a storm drain near their home must take special precautions not to stack leaves on top of or near storm structures.  This could lead to drains backing up, causing puddling near your home, and leaves that enter the storm system pollute our waterways.  To learn more about protecting our valuable waterways, you may visit the following link - http://www.the-macc.org/watershed/overview/
