Neighborhood Trash Pickup

The City of Detroit has contracted with two firms to provide collection of garbage, bulk items, yard waste and recycling services. The Contractor selected for the west side of the City is Advanced Disposal.

Trash Collection

Garbage pickup is on WEDNESDAY of every week for the entire Boston-Edison area. Residential customers will continue to use their existing Courville container. Only one container is authorized per household (unless the homeowner pays an extra fee.) The garbage container must be placed curbside prior to 7 a.m.

Yard Waste

Pickup of yard waste is on the same Thursday as bulk trash pickup. Yard waste pickup runs approximately April 13 - November 30. Yard waste must be placed curbside prior to 7 a.m. Learn more about yard waste here.

Bulk Trash

Pickup of bulk trash is every other week on THURSDAY for the entire Boston-Edison area. Bulk trash pickup runs year-round. Bulk trash must be placed curbside prior to 7 a.m. Learn more about bulk trash, and the difference from yard waste, here.

Curbside Recycling

To take part in curbside recycling, residents must sign up online or call (844) 2-DETROIT (233-8764) to request a recycling container. There is a one-time fee of $25 for the container. Residents will receive additional recycling information in the mail. Recycling pickup is every other week on Thursday (but varies through the neighborhood).
