Current Leaf Collection Status

Leaves are picked up on a routine cycle. On average all routes can be collected in one week. Currently, we are in our heavy season (October – December) and the routine is taking approximately two to three weeks to complete one cycle through the entire city.

Leaves should be raked into a pile and left loosely on the curbside. Please do not bag any leaves or place them over the curbside into the street (this causes the drainage to become clogged). When utilizing the area between the roadway and sidewalk, the sidewalk should not be covered (this is hazardous to others safety).

Thank you for your cooperation
