Yard Waste


Because the Stay-at-Home order has been lifted, and City Hall has re-opened, residents must now purchase a landfill voucher in-person at the Treasurer's Office prior to dumping at Woodland Meadows Landfill.

Questions can be answered by calling Waste Management Inc. at 866-797-9018 or Romulus Public Works Department at 734-942-7579.


Items such as grass clippings and small branches are removed between the second full week of April and the second full week of December by a waste disposal company contracted by the City of Romulus.

  • Yard waste must be placed in yard waste brown paper bags or a container labeled with a Yard Waste Sticker (available from Public Works or City Hall).
  • Yard waste must be separated from regular rubbish by at least three feet. During the defined season, yard waste will be picked up by a separate truck.
  • Small branches, shrubs, twigs, etc. must be tied in bundles of no more than 3 feet in length. The bundles should not weigh more than 50lbs.
  • Plastic bags containing yard waste will not be accepted for pickup.
  • Mixed yard waste and regular rubbish are not accepted for pickup.
  • Residents are encouraged to use the method of composting whenever possible and wherever reasonable.
