DETROIT (WXYZ) — The City of Detroit is set to resume curbside yard waste collection beginning Monday, April 27.

Residents can place grass clippings, leaves and small twigs that are no more than 2 inches in diameter in biodegradable paper bags on their bi-monthly scheduled bulk collection day.

Yard waste will not be collected in plastic bags.
