Fall Leaf Collection Begins Monday, November 4

2019 Fall leaf collection begins Monday, November 4 and runs through December 13. Residents can place any volume of leaves, sticks smaller than 4' in length and 2” diameter, grass clippings or other organic debris as part of this program.  We ask that residents push the organic material to the curb lawn where it will be picked up by City crews. Leaves need to be out by 7 a.m. on the Monday for your designated area. 

Each section of the City will have two pick-up dates scheduled, however depending on the weather, the second pick-up may not occur. If your leaves are not taken, please store them until the following April for collection during the April Spring Clean Up, or take them to a private drop-off site. Please do not report missed collections until the crews have made a complete sweep through your section. This best utilizes crew’s time and efforts, and ensures the most productivity.

Please avoid placing leaves near mailboxes, utility poles, landscaped areas, or over or directly adjacent to storm sewer drains. If you notice a blocked drain, please take a moment to clear any obstructions. This helps ensure the stormwater system operates efficiently and avoides unnecessary maintenance.
