Yard Waste Pickup Begins Week of April 3

yard waste bagsDon't put your yard waste bags out on the curb yet - they won't be picked up until the first week of April. Even though our winter has been mild this year, state law does not allow contractors to pick up and take yard waste to landfills during the winter months (December 16-April 1st). If you have yard waste bags filled, you can either hold onto the bags until the curbside yard waste pick up begins the week of April 3, or you may take up to 10 yard waste bags to SOCRRA, located at 995 Coolidge in Troy.  

Old Woodward Downtown Infrastructure Project midblock crossing graphic

Over the next several years the City of Birmingham will invest in the City's infrastructure by addressing the needs in the downtown Central Business District with water system, sewer system and streetscape upgrades. This year efforts will focus on the Central Business District into larger areas involving both Old Woodward and Maple. These areas have some of the oldest water and sewer lines in the City, as well as a streetscape that is on a different grade than the road. Much of this current infrastructure was installed in the 1940s and has exceeded its useful life.
