Fall leaf collection program

Fall leaf collection program

From: http://www.eastgr.org

The City's fall leaf pick-up program continues through Friday, December 7, 2012. East Grand Rapids residents can place their yard waste out along the curb line in front of their home for collection without it being containerized during this time period. Residents are asked to please not obstruct traffic lanes or sidewalks when placing their leaves out for collection.

Subject to weather limitations, City crews will try to maintain the regular published yard waste collection schedule. This schedule is available on the City’s web site at www.eastgr.org. Should City crews fall behind with the schedule, each daily route will be completed before proceeding into the following day’s route.

It's time to recycle those old phone books

It's time to recycle those old phone books

From EastGR.org:

New phone books are arriving all over town and that means residents are looking for places to get rid of the old ones.  The City no longer places a separate dumpster at the Public Works Complex for collection.  We now urge residents to support their local schools by using the Paper Gator recycling program!

If you haven't already been using the Paper Gator dumpsters, here's how it works:  Paper Gator Recycling of Byron Center places green dumpsters around the area at schools and churches for the community to use for recycling many different kinds of paper.  The dumpsters are emptied regularly, and the non-profit organizations are paid by weight for all the paper collected.

Residents encouraged to use 'paper gator' to recycle old phone books

East Grand Rapids, Mich. (WZZM) New phone books are arriving all over town and that means residents are looking for places to get rid of the old ones.  The City no longer places a separate dumpster at the Public Works Complex for collection.  We now urge residents to support their local schools by using the Paper Gator recycling program!

There are currently three Paper Gator dumpsters at East Grand Rapids School Buildings, and the Schools are welcoming your old phone books (and any other recyclable paper you'd like to donate).

Fall Leaf Pickup Continues

City crews are currently on schedule with fall leaf collection, but due to equipment breakdowns or shear volume of leaves the crews may fall behind. When this happens each day's route will be completed prior to collecting leaves in the next scheduled collection route.

Fall leaf collection run's through the first full week of December.
