The Village of Kent City was incorporated in 1908. It is located in the northwestern corner of Kent County – within Tyrone Township and is surrounded by an abundance of rich farmland. Kent City is primarily a bedroom community with industrial areas growing along the M37 state highway. The Village lies in proximity to the Rogue River State Game area. The natural resources of the area, in combination with the Village’s tranquil community character, and immediacy to the City of Grand Rapids, have helped make the village a family friendly town.
What to do with yard waste is the number one question we get in the Spring and Summer. The Village will pick up some brush and grass clippings free of charge. The Yard Waste Policy is available on the website or by contacting the Village Office..
This service does not include trees that you have taken down or major trimming. The Village has a secured area where you can dump tree debris. Contact the DPW Manager at 616-293-0693 to make arrangements to drop off your debris.
Other issues: Before planting trees and bushes or installing sprinkler heads please make sure they are on your property and not in the Village right-of-way.
