PICKUP OF BAGGED LITTER

When you register with the City of Detroit, you also will receive information regarding special pickups of bagged litter.  There will be NO CURBSIDE PICKUP of bagged litter.

In addition, volunteers may take bagged litter to any of the five drop-off locations. Individuals or groups that leave bagged litter in locations NOT designated by the City of Detroit may be fined for illegal dumping, which is a crime. Violators may have their vehicles impounded and are subject to fines up to $10,000.
