Garbage and Recycle Cart Delivery Update

Garbage and recycle carts from the fall order are scheduled to be delivered the week of October 18.  Carts will show up on your curb and price adjustments to your utility bill will be made after the delivery. Carts may be used immediately.

We appreciate your patience.

Fall Leaf Collection Placement

As fall leaf and brush cleanup preparations begin, please remember to not place leaves in the road or along the curb line. This causes leaves to collect in the storm drains and creates flooding in the streets. This sediment is also entering the storm drain system with the potential of plugging the storm water main.

Leaves must be placed behind the curb line, not in the street. Residents not complying will be in violation of Section 38-22(c) of the Marquette City Code. We are also reminding motorists to avoid parking in positions that block access to leaf piles, or they will not be picked up.

Please visit the City of Marquette website www.marquettemi.gov for further information.
