The Village of Sebewaing (Village) residents pay for the Brush Pile located on Liken Road through their property taxes. This is a privilege for the residents and property owners of the Village. The Brush Pile is intended for branches and brush that will burn easily.
The Brush Pile has been abused by non-residents and contractors dumping large logs and tree roots that do not burn easily. The Village is paying employees to move these items which causes wear and tear and potential damage to Village equipment.
Effective September 25, 2023, as approved by the Village Council, the Brush Pile will be locked. Residents and property owners can request access, by appointment, to the Brush Pile by contacting:
Village of Sebewaing
222 N. Center Street
Sebewaing, MI 48759
Dumping of brush along Liken Road outside of the locked gates of the Brush Pile location is considered littering. The grassy area along Liken Road is only for grass clippings and leaves. A local farmer is using his equipment to spread the grass clippings into the field. Brush dumped in the grassy area will damage his equipment.
Grass clippings can be placed in the designated area beside the DPW buildings on South First Street. Burning of grass clippings and leaves is prohibited in the Village.
The DPW will pick up curbside brush as their workload allows. Limbs/stick needs to be placed parallel to the street in manageable sized piles. Limbs/stick should be no longer than 8' long and 6" in diameter.
The grass and weeds have been growing again due to the recent rain and warm weather. Village of Sebewaing ordinance 101 referencing weed control and grass can be found by clicking the button below. Grass clippings can be taken to the DPW building at 145 W. Main Street or along Liken Road.
It's that time of year. Keep your toilet lids closed to reduce odor. Run some water in sinks and drains if desired; however, no water usage credit will be given. Thank you.
To reach APM Mosquito Control, please call (877) 276-4714.
Compost pit next to the DPW building is for grass and leaves only. Brush may be placed parallel to the street on the shoulder for DPW pickup, or Village residents may haul their brush to the Village brush pile located on Liken Rd.
Please do not dump grass or leaves at the brush pile site. Grass and leaves may be dumped South of the brush pile next to the larger piles along Liken Rd.
