Spring Collections


The City of Portage annual Spring Cleanup Program will run from April 12 – May 13. Each spring, the City of Portage conducts the Spring Cleanup Program, giving residents the opportunity to reduce household clutter and rid their homes of unwanted household materials by placing them at curbside for pickup. Residents can visit to view program details and a collection map and learn their collection date. Neighborhood collection occurs only once during the Spring Cleanup Program, so it is important to place items at the curb by 7 AM on the scheduled collection date. 

Running concurrently with the Spring Cleanup Program, the April Quarterly Bagged Leaf and Brush Collection Program will run from April 5 – 30. Brush and bagged leaves, including ornamental grasses, will be collected. Residents can visit to view program details and a collection map and learn their collection date. All materials should be at curbside no later than 7 AM on the designated Monday of the collection week. Materials may not be collected on Monday; however, each zone will be cleared of materials by the end of the designated week for each zone. Residents are asked to pile brush and leaves separate from any household materials for the Spring Cleanup collection.

On Saturday, May 1, the City of Portage Compost Facility will be open for residents to drop off brush and bagged leaves between the hours of 9 AM – 1 PM. The compost facility is located at 10905 Oakland Drive, just south of West Osterhout Avenue. This service is restricted to Portage homeowners; please be prepared to present proof of residency (driver’s license).

The curbside collection programs are not performed for commercial establishments, churches or schools or on private streets. Residents may call the Department of Public Works at (269) 329-4444 with questions about these spring collection programs.
