Elizabeth Nelson's City Council Blog

I write a City Council newsletter with my summary of agenda items coming before City Council.

Sign up to receive it first via email, or read it here later on this blog. I also post my perspectives on how issues were resolved, and charts of how Council voted at each meeting. I post Ward 4 road construction news under "Construction", and other news that affects Ward 4 residents under the category "Ward 4 News". News that affects all city residents is posted under "City News".

Last compost pickup Friday Dec 13th

Seasonal curbside compost/yard waste collections end Friday, Dec. 13, 2019, and will resume in Spring 2020.

Ann Arbor residents, commercial properties and/or their contracted landscapers and haulers may drop off leaves (only) to the Compost Center at no charge also through Dec. 13. Proof of residency is required. The Compost Center is located at 4150 Platt Road and is open weekdays 8 a.m.–4 p.m.

Please note, Michigan law (link) prohibits leaf burning in cities with populations over 7,500, which includes Ann Arbor. The City has more information about leaf management here:


Also note that there are two City holidays coming up when there will be no trash​, recycling, or compost collection. Curbside service will be conducted one day later, with the normal Friday collection days picked up on Saturday during these holiday weeks. ​​​​​​
