- Trailers 8' and under in size: $10
- Trailer 9'-16' in size: $20

Environmental Wood Solution is located at 1811 James P. Cole Blvd. (near Hamilton Ave). Hours for Leaf Drop-off Service are Mondays - Fridays from 7:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 7:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. through December 21, 2013.
The City of Flint also reminds residents to keep leaves from piling up in the street where they can cause blockage to the drainage system. They're also encourage to store bagged leaves in garages, sheds or other sheltered areas until Yard Waste Pickup resumes on April, 2014.
