Leaf Pickup

The City of Ludington provides curbside pickup of leaves each fall.

City of Ludington 2017 Fall Leaf Pickup Guidelines 

Curbside leaves will be picked up starting mid-October through December 1st (weather permitting). There will not be a set schedule for the curbside pick up routes. 

City residents are asked to do the following:
  • Curbed streets rake leaves into the gutter
  • All other streets, rake leaves to the edge of street
  • Please do not place leaves in the roadway where they will impede traffic
  • Keep leaves in a row, do not place your leaves behind mailboxes or trees, equipment cannot reach these areas
  • Broken limbs/brush should not be placed on leaf piles (please separate and call DPW for brush pickup 231-843-2873)
  • Please park cars off the street when leaf piles are in the area


Beginning in mid-October, the Department of Public Works will have several crews out every day all day, however inclement weather and excessive leaf fall, may cause delays. We will continue to pick up leaves until December 1st, weather permitting!

Please call the Department of Public Works with questions at 231-843-2873, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
