Archived News Release: November 18, 2020 - There will be no trash, recycling or compost curbside collection services in the city of Ann Arbor on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 26. The normal Thursday pickups will occur on Friday, and the normal Friday routes will be serviced on Saturday, Nov. 28, this week only.
Ann Arbor municipal offices, including the customer service center at Larcom City Hall and the 15th Judicial District Court, will be closed on Thursday, Nov. 26, and Friday, Nov. 27. Safety services and utility operations will maintain 24-hour schedules throughout. The Larcom City Hall building will continue to be closed through Dec. 8, as previously announced, per the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services COVID-19 order (https://www.a2gov.org/news/pages/article.aspx?i=747).
The seasonal curbside pickups of compostable materials will end for the season on Friday, Dec. 11, 2020. Ann Arbor's compost collection provides an opportunity for pickup of fall leaves and other yard debris that have been placed on lawn extensions in compost carts, paper bags, or branches tied into bundles, as described online at www.a2gov.org/compost. Leaves are not permitted in the street and will not be collected if placed there.
Residents and contractors are also able, until Friday, Dec. 11, to deliver unlimited amounts of leaves from city of Ann Arbor residential properties to the city's compost facility, located at 4170 Platt Road. The city strongly encourages residents and contractors to take advantage of this opportunity to reduce the volumes of bags at the curb, which present a safety risk to staff and hinders the city's ability to service all properties.
