The Right Place for your Yard Waste
During the spring and summer months, and into fall, we create yard waste by mowing, raking, and pruning trees and shrubs. The City of Midland provides a disposal area for yard waste to alleviate the overfilling of neighborhood dumpsters. The disposal area is located at:
At 4100 Smith Road by Air Park, North of the Claydesta and East of the Post Office. (No Commercial USE)
Items accepted include grass clippings, leaves, twigs, branches, and limbs. Please do not include tree stumps or construction debris. Yard waste is ground into mulch that aids in water conservation in our parks and other city facilities. It is also available to be picked up by residents. You must load it on your own.
Finally, please note that there is surveillance at this location to deter illegal dumping. It is imperative that users place ONLY yard waste at the brush site. If there is anything other than the above-listed yard waste, you may be cited and fined.
The other option for yard waste is the City of Midland Landfill on Garden City Highway, five miles east of Midland. Both locations take commercial and residential dumping of yard waste. There is a fee.
