State law prohibits yard waste going into landfills. City of Tecumseh residents can put out yard waste for pickup on their regular pickup day from March through the second week in December for composting at a state-authorized site. This includes leaves, grass clippings, garden waste and shrub trimmings. Put out yard waste before 7:00 a.m. It must be in one of the following containers:
Brush and tree trimmings
Branches no more than 4 inches in diameter. They must be cut no more than 4 feet long, and tied in bundles no more than 1 foot in diameter. Leave bundles at curbside for pickup.
Composting is the natural process by which organic matter decays into a dark, rich and crumbly substance called humus, which makes an excellent soil conditioner. Tecumseh residents interested in reducing the amount of yard waste for pickup might want to consider backyard composting.
