Leaf Pickup

leaf-pickup

The City vacuums leaves from the curb from October 1st through March 31st. Please place your leaves loose at the edge of the street NOT in the street.  Leaves should not be placed in the gutter line near storm drains or ditches—heavy rains can cause the leaves to block the flow of rainwater.  Please do not bag or containerize leaves from October 1st through March 31st as it slows down the progress of collection.  If you need to transport leaves from a rear yard to the curb, please use a a tarp or some other container and then empty the contents of the container/tarp loose onto the curb.

 
During peak leaf season November - February, yard waste and bagged leaves will only be collected:
Nov 2nd - 6th
Dec 7th - 11th
Jan 4th - 8th

 

2015-2016 Leaf Season Information

 

During leaf season (October 1st through March 31st), the volume of leaves is very heavy, therefore we cannot guarantee your leaves to be serviced on your regular collection day.  During the peak leaf season November, December and January we will collect your leaves at least 2 times per month and not every week.
 
REMEMBER!  AFTER MARCH 31st until September 30th leaves must be put in a 32-gallon trash can.
 
Offices for Solid Waste are open 8:00 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday and are located at 700 North Broad Street.
