Our Department of Public Works performs many water tests throughout the year to ensure that our water is the best quality and safe to drink. To view the Village of Howard City's water quality reports, please click on the link below.

Spring leaf pickup will begin when the snow is gone and continue to approximately the beginning of May. Leaves in approved waste removal bags will still be picked up.


Fall leaf pickup will begin approximately the week of October 14 and continue until November 21 or the first snow, whichever comes first.


Brush Pick Up is scheduled for the third Tuesday of every month from April - October. Please make sure to have your brush with the butts facing the road and nothing over 1" in diameter. If you have any questions, please contact our DPW Department at 231-937-4311 ext. 3564.
