Equipment for Sale

Nothing at this time.


Collection dates are the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays from April through November. This is done by the City's Department of Public Works at no additional cost to residents.

● This is for fallen branches or minor tree trimming done by the property owner.  The City will not collect brush or branches from trees that have been removed by a tree removal service.
● Place brush piles, no greater than 4 feet high, neatly at the curb with all the cut ends in the same direction, preferably with the ends facing away from the direction of traffic.
● This is for large branches and limbs over 4 feet in length. The main branch stem should have a minimum diameter of 1 inch and not be greater than 6 inches.  (For the safety of employees, very small branches or sticks will not be collected.)
● Brush contaminated with dirt, vines, stumps, stones or metal cannot be chipped and will not be collected.

Leaf pickup is in the Fall only 
(no leaf pickup in the Spring).  Do not bag your leaves. Any changes to the dates on the calendar will be on the City website and on the City’s Facebook page.  If you live on Grand River Avenue, do not put them in the street, only rake to the curb.  All other areas, if the leaves are not in the street, they will not be picked up.


There will be hydrant flushing throughout the City of Williamston in spring/summer months.  Hydrant flushing is done during the day.  Please be sure your water is running clear before you do laundry (especially light colors or whites). Hydrant flushing is done to ensure the water system is functioning properly and can handle fighting a fire.


It is the responsibility of the property owner to remove any ice and snow from the entire length of the sidewalk on their property whether the property is unoccupied or if there is a building or structure on it.  Sidewalks need to be cleared within 24 hours of cessation of snowfall if less than 4" or within 48 hours if greater than 4". Sidewalks not cleared may be cleaned by the City and the property owner will be invoiced. Per City Ordinance 50-32.


All lawns/grass areas including vacant lots are to be kept mowed. Grass & weeds over 12 inches will result in a letter from the City with a 10 day notice to mow. If not mowed, City personnel will mow the grass and the property owner will be invoiced.  Per City ordinance 26-73.

Results from PFAS testing by State of Michigan - The results show that of the PFOA and PFOS compounds tested, the chemicals were not detected in the City's water supply; therefore, levels are below the EPA's LHA level.
