City of Lansing Announces Storm Debris Cleanup Plan

In response to the storm event this week that included high winds, the City of Lansing has been working continuously to clean up storm debris, remove downed trees and trim dangerous limbs to eliminate hazards. Approximately 85 sites with significant tree damage have been reported and city crews have investigated and abated over half of these locations. The city’s Forestry crews will continue working to remove all of the hazards caused from downed trees and limbs, as well as beginning collection of debris from the hardest hit areas of the city.

While we continue cleaning up the hardest hit areas over the next few weeks, the city’s yard waste pickup will begin CITY-WIDE on Monday, April 10th .Details of the program and guidelines for the placement of storm debris adjacent to the roadway are indicated below:

  1. All tree debris may be placed adjacent to the roadway prior to April 10th.
  2. Please place limbs with the larger cut ends facing the same direction in the pile
    without blocking the street or sidewalk.
  3. Tree limbs or trunks must be no longer than 4 feet in length.
  4. Pickup will occur along with the city’s normal yard waste pickup program which
    begins April 10. This collection is for tree and yard material and not building material such as wood, siding or roofing material.

If you have a damaged tree on private property, please contact a licensed tree removal company and/or your homeowner’s insurance company to arrange for its appropriate trimming or removal.

To report a downed city tree or to contact us for more information, please call the City of Lansing Public Service Department at 517-483-4161.
